Alicia Keys performs to a sold-out crowd in her “New Day” video.
Just when we’d finished sweating (and drooling) over Alicia Keys and Maxwell’s steamy love affair in their “Fire We Make” video, now, exactly one week later, Alicia has unveiled a bold and high-energy new video for the Swizz Beatz-produced single “New Day,” the latest from 2012’s Girl On Fire.
Watch Alicia Keys’ “New Day” video after the jump.
In the Indrani-directed video, Alicia hits the streets of New York City where she saunters in exceptionally high heels (if she’s not wearing Dr. Scholl’s gel pads, then she’s a miracle worker), meets up with some dancer/model/graffiti artist pals, and spray paints the walls with the lyrics to “New Day.”
Just as we’re settling into NYC’s back alleys, “New Day” cuts to Alicia performing at a sold-out show (perhaps borrowing footage from her “Set The World On Fire” tour?), where she’s straight up nailing her choreography (you should dance more often, lady!) and her entire performance in general. Is this video as, say, “after-hours appropriate” as “Fire We Make”? Nah, but at least this is one you can safely watch at work without feeling VERY sad you’re sleeping alone tonight. Thanks for that, Alicia!
