New Video: Alicia Keys, 'Un-thinkable (I'm Ready),' Featuring Chad Michael Murray!

HOLY CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY WITH A MULLET. Seriously. Pause it right around 2:53.

Back to why we're here. Alicia Keys has a new video out for her breathtaking single "Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)," which features Drake, but Drake isn't in the video. Chad Michael Murray (Lucas!!) is, and he plays Alicia's forbidden love interest in the Jake Nava-directed clip. Both Alicia and CMM have several different hairdos. Some better than others. There's also quick slight-of-hand time shifting action and black-and-white olde-timey-ness. And a WHOLE lot of product placement. Hey, videos cost money.

All hair jokes aside, "Un-thinkable," which present-day Alicia Keys narrates, is very much a social comment on the permanency and pervasiveness of racism, as the couple's tensions follow them through the decades.
