Alicia Keys is currently globetrotting on The ALICIA + KEYS World Tour, but she had time to link back up with Khalid and Lucky Daye to film a brand new visual for their single “Come For Me (Unlocked).” The collaboration from her KEYS double album previously received an official video back in December around the time of the project’s release, but Alicia apparently decided that the song was so nice she had to do it twice.
The officially official video for “Come For Me (Unlocked)” is definitely an upgrade from the original clip. After taking us into the studio for the recording sesh with Khalid and Lucky and showing us the nighttime skyline of her beloved hometown of New York City, Alicia wanted to zhuzh things up a bit and deliver a more artistic vision this time around.
Keys gives the people understated glam in a few fashionable looks with her hair pulled back into a diva-length braided ponytail. Khalid and Lucky Daye don’t look too shabby themselves in gear tailored to their personas.
The trio are captured on a relatively plain set that looks anything but thanks to the manipulation of light and shadow and colorful tones. They take turns singing their respective lyrics and getting camera time, but the majority of the focus is, of course, on Alicia who looks absolutely gorgeous throughout the chill visual that complements the mood of the song.
To see even more of Alicia Keys, be sure to catch her on The ALICIA + KEYS World Tour, which wraps up its European leg this month before venturing stateside next month. The prolific artist also announced that she’ll be dropping a deluxe edition of KEYS, entitled KEYS 2, on Friday, August 12th.
KEYS 2 will feature two new tracks – another song with Lucky Daye named “Stay” and the song “Trillions” with Brent Faiyaz who recently teamed up with Alicia on the song “GHETTO GATSBY” from his recently released new album WASTELAND. The deluxe album will also have two remixes of her 2016 single “In Common.”
