Behind the Video: Alicia Keys – ‘Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)’

Alicia Keys takes on interracial dating in the past and present in the video for “Un-thinkable (I’m Ready),” the third single from The Element of Freedom. The powerful clip, which premieres May 12 on VEVO, was directed by Jake Nava and co-stars actor Chad Michael Murray as Alicia’s love interest.

“Alicia is a true artist and I was very pleased that she was brave enough to go with this unusual concept. Together I believe we have done something new and important,” said Nava. “I hope people are entertained by this video, but that it also makes them think. Alicia was a joy to work with. I love her music and aimed to enhance her visual impact in the marketplace.”
