Alicia Keys ‘Unthinkable’ Video: Ode To Jungle Fever

Music

By: Clover Hope / May 12, 2010

No Drake cameo here. In the music video for this Drizzy-penned forbidden-love ballad, “Unthinkable,” Alicia Keys goes the socially conscious route to show how interracial dating is still a divisive issue no matter the era. The clip finds her contemplating whether to follow her heart and date the White dude (Chad Michael Murray, from One Tree Hill) she’s pining after (and vice versa) or relent to societal peer pressure. Is he “good enough”? Feeling the message?

BONUS: Just the other day, Regina King was encouraging Black women to date outside their race
