Alicia Keys On FINALLY Dropping ‘Put It In a Love Song’ Video: ‘Beyonce Would Be Cool With It’

Published: Wednesday 30th Sep 2020 by Rashad

It’s been over 10 years since the music video for Alicia Keys and Beyonce‘s duet, ‘Put It In a Love Song,’ was filmed in Brazil but – for specific reasons undisclosed by either party – was never properly released.

The Swizz Beatz-produced song, featured on Keys’ fourth studio album ‘Element of Freedom’ (2009), was set to be the LP’s fourth official single yet was eventually scrapped despite having tapped famed music video director Melina Matsoukas to helm its accompanying visual.

In the time since, Alicia has fielded many questions about its release status – most of which she’s dodged with ambiguous answers.  Now, hot on the promo trail of her seventh studio album ‘ALICIA,’ the 15-time GRAMMY winner was quizzed again on if the clip will ever see the light of day.

See what she said about that and so much more inside:

    After how many years later? No one cares anymore Alicia. Stop living in the past and do a video for one of your songs off your NEW album.

      Put it in a Flop song was originally a CUTTING ROOM FLOOR LEFTOVER from beys I AM album. A keys was always jealous of the Queens career so bey felt sorry and gave it to akeys… until they both realized it was trash just like the rest of ELEMENT OF SLAVERY

    It’s your video, sis. Beyoncé doesn’t have much say so nor do I think she’s that petty to give a damn.

  3. Domobran September 30, 2020

    I would love to see that video. RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!

  4. What would whitney say September 30, 2020

    you guys really need to back the camera up off of her face, that is so disrespectful to all of the models , the beauty queens and stuff that you have the camera right in her mother f****** face she is ugly w/o makeup,,,,beautiful women are sick of you guys doing that

    That old ass song. The video would dope tho!

  6. Pat September 30, 2020

    At this point the lack of views would just make it look bad

  7. tyty September 30, 2020

    Release the video or stfu seriously. What’s on this freaking video that she doesn’t want anyone to see?

    • Ropeburn September 30, 2020

      Maybe they lez it up in the video and AKeys wasn’t comfortable with that.

  8. DC September 30, 2020

    She’s so annoying

  9. Rere September 30, 2020

    Very annoying

  10. non+ya+biz September 30, 2020

    I still don’t understand why it wasn’t released…..fill me in…

    • just+saying September 30, 2020

      Beyonce probably outperformed her in the video and she didn’t want to be outdone on her own song.

  11. Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 30, 2020

    To start with alicia is starting to look haggard… isnt aging well like bey is. Bey looks even younger without make-up. Alicias age is catching up to her, bey still looks EXACTLY the same as she did in put it in a flop song vid.

    Now that Akeys has made her way well into the FLOP rabbit hole NOW she wants to release the video with the Queen to reclaim sum form of relevance but at first wouldn’t release it cuz bey dominated the entire track and video

    I bet SOMETHING happened behind the scenes afterwards concerning EDITING and Bey must have dominating the entire screentime just like she dominated their performance

    Either way it’s both Poetic and Unprofessional at the same time

    This dumb b-itch

    In this time of 140 characters or less, I do wish TGJ would just add quotes from clips to the story…
