Music: Whatabeauty! - Alicia Keys 'Unthinkable (I'm Ready)'

This, for me, has been one of the musical highlights of the year. I was so indifferent to Alicia's solo singles from the album The Element of Freedom I was tempted to not bother listen to this, but I'm so glad I did!

Written by hard-working Drake ;o), the song tells of a woman placing her proverbial cards on the table and asking her potential (I dunno, suitor, lover, link?!) who is going to make the first move - regardless of who will start the process, she's ready. 

The video is really entertaining, cutting through different eras of an interracial relationship between Alicia and Chad Michael Murray (formerly in One Tree Hill), but I just don't understand why she stops at the halfway point of a fight each time, if you're going to intercept, do it properly!

Plus, barring the nasty haircuts, I think Chad Michael Murray looks quite cute.

(I thought it would be released in the UK. Not so.)

What do you think about the video? Alicia? Chad? 


  1. Hm...while I don't share your passion for pop music, I love the background on your blog! Where'd you get it?

  2. Lol. That's life. Thanks for the design comps. I used Design Templates, that's it.
