This week Alicia Keys unveiled the visual to her latest song “Time Machine” and let’s just say it’s giving us major throwback vibes! The music video, co-directed by Art Johnson and Keys’ brother Cole Cook, is set in a roller skating rink where Alicia is seen skating with her friends in bright, retro clothes, dancing and having the best time…until she’s woken up by an annoyed Tierra Whack, who brings her back to reality.
When asked about the song in a recent interview, the singer said “It feels like a skating song to me. Like after you’ve gone around a few times, and you finally get your legs and you’re free and you’re just able to completely be yourself…not worried about Am I gonna fall? Am I gonna trip? Is someone going to bump into me?”
“Time Machine” is the follow up to her “Show Me Love” track featuring R&B crooner Miguel, which will appear on her seventh album set for release in 2020.
