With whispers that her seventh album — the follow-up to 2016’s Here — is on the way, Alicia Keys hits the roller rink in her video for “Time Machine.”
Directed by Art Johnson and Keys’ brother Cole Cook, Alicia heads to Los Angeles’ World On Wheels — which, after closing down in 2013, was reopened thanks in part to Nipsey Hussle in 2017 — to bounce, rock and roller-skate. “It feels like a skating song to me,” Keys told Entertainment Weekly. “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 be completely be yourself… not worried about ‘Am I gonna fall? Am I gonna trip? Is someone going to bump into me?’”
With a cameo from Tierra Whack, the video can be seen below.
