Alicia Keys falls for Chad Michael Murray in 'Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)' video: Watch it here

“If we do the unthinkable,” Alicia Keys wonders in the chorus of her latest single, “would it make us look crazy?” Her dramatic new video for “Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)” imagines that choice as one involving One Tree Hill hunk Chad Michael Murray. The clip jumps around freely from the 1950s to the present day and everything in between. In all of those eras, Keys’ character falls for Murray’s, only to face the scorn of relatives and neighbors. This, a press release from Keys’ label explains, was meant to “capture…the torment and turmoil of a forbidden love that crosses racial and family ties” and “question…whether or not true love really conquers all.”

So, does true love really conquer all? Would a relationship between Keys and Murray still be unthinkable to some people in 2010? What do you think of this video, anyway? Check out “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)” after the jump and let us know.

    When she sang it on AI, I couldn’t understand a word she was singing and she sounded out of breath. Now that I hear it, it’s a lovely song.
