Video Premiere: Alicia Keys' 'Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)'
Alicia Keys has a crush on a white man played by Chad Michael Murray in a music video for her single "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)". Racism and interracial tensions, however, keep them away from each other. "What, I'm not good enough?" Chad questions Alicia's brother when she is escorted away following a fight between her black friends and his gang.
The video is directed by Jake Nava. "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," the director previously told Rap-Up. "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."
Taken from Alicia Keys' 2009 album "The Element of Freedom", "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" actually features Drake on the hook, but the Canadian rapper doesn't make cameo appearance in the music video.
