Alicia Keys – “Unthinkable” feat Drake

I get a little emo sometimes, and Alicia and Drake speak to my sensibilities with Key’s track (feat. Drake) with “Unthinkable (I’m Ready).” Her new album, The Element of Freedom, drip drops on the 12/15/09. Though Drake’s vocals are barely audible, that’s not such a bad thing here b/c Keyes can obviously hold it down on her own. It’s 4 min. of a love story, with sultry vocals and beats that are hella addictive. On top of that, Keyes goes a little deeper with her lyrics, which I’m glad to see. It’s definitely my new shit, and serving as my winter love song. One word, many, many times. Repeat.

Good look to BlindI’s Maiya for the track!
