Beyoncé and Alicia Keys' 'Put It In a Love Song' video: Watch a delightful preview here

An all-important piece of any great diva-on-diva collaboration is a killer-fabulous music video. Just think back to some of the best, more recent diva duos that churned out amazing clips—for instance, the mind-boggle that is Gaga and Beyoncé’s “Telephone” and that deliciousness put together a decade ago by Missy, Christina, Pink, and Lil’ Kim in “Lady Marmalade.”

There are, of course, many more. But one that we’ll likely be adding to that list? Beyoncé and Alicia’s video collab for their song “Put It In a Love Song.” We’ve already seen on-set photos from the video shoot and we’ve, of course, heard the actual song, but the fine folks over at Idolator discovered this fun behind-the-scenes preview thingy for the forthcoming video, which you can watch after the jump.

The duet is already a sultry blast, but could this sparkly, tribal, showgirls-filled video potentially send it into the stratosphere? Methinks, yes, hopefully. And: Beyoncé and Alicia look stunning, especially Alicia’s juicy-red lips. Watch the preview here and tell me what you think afterward:

Thoughts? Share them below.

UPDATE: According to Keys’ publicist, you won’t be seeing the full clip anytime soon: “Presently, there are no plans to release the video,” she tells EW.

    Isn’t this song kinda old? Like a year old? Love Alicia– can’t wait!!

    • April

      Yeah, I remember hearing about this last Summer

      • Reena

        Im guessing that even though this song did come out last summer they waited til Alicia delivered her baby to do the video…just a thought..

  • ST

    I was thinking the same thing but I have the CD (yes I still buy those) and thought maybe that was why it seemed old. love this song though. Should be good!

    • Lesley

      Great song, they are pretty and was amazing

  • joseph t

    Yeah I thought they made this video over a year ago. Good song but strange to release the video now…

    • Maureen

      Agreed. Love the song, but it definitely seems weird to release the video a year later.

    • MT

      Maybe they want to do a whole album together…

  • Face

    Hey, Entertainment Weekly, this is Alicia’s damm song. Why is Beyonce labeled first?

    Anyway, If it’s coming, I can’t wait.

    • Michael

      Yeah. Not only that, but why did Alicia Keys wait so long to do another music video after her last one from The ELement Of Freedom, Un-thinkable. I thought that song was much better.

  • jessie

    How do you look at that clip and think it real. Come one EW. Its obviously fan made clip. Do better EW.

    • Phil

      Its def. real you moron. The video was filmed long before Alicia got pregnant & started showing, and none of the singles were taking off at pop radio. The only question is why is she going back to to this song now, unless she is really taking time to be a mommy & not record any new material, and for once there isnt any new Beyonce record on the radio, so if they paid for this video to be filmed in South America why not release it?

  • cibele

    The record label decided not to release this video, but I remember reading some Twitter fans doing some campaign. I don’t know if that’s the reason though.

  • Spongey

    They did make this video a year ago, but then the record label decided to release a different song. And then Alicia got pregnant, so perhaps everyone involved figured to give it another shot. It’s a catchy little song, I like!

  • Justin

    This preview is old. I could have sworn I saw this at least a year ago. I just assumed the video came and went and nobody really cared, sort of like the song. I had no idea this was even shelved. So strange.

  • James

    Love it! RELEASE IT!

  • Ilene Dover

    Don’t know why on earth Alicia Keys did not release this one….the song is great and Beyonce and Alicia look terrific!! Just STUNNING indeed! This is the kind of video that needs to be released–they can keep some of the horrid videos from the likes of Gaga and Kesha for instance! Hope to see the rest of the video!

  • abigail anderson

    i love beyonce

  • anita

    Well for whatever reason looks like it won’t be released. Strange. People should get their story straight before they start announcing things that aren’t true. Seems like this would’ve been a great video. Both women sing and look great. Too bad.

  • Rich

  • gugu
