One of my favorite songs off of Alicia’s last album and the video made me love it even more.

Watch it and tell me what you think. It kind of leaves you hanging at the end because the message to the video is that “LOVE” should concur all, but at what cost?

What are you willing to risk to be with the one you love (no matter who they are or what they are…)?

I’ve been there and I was willing to go all in for it (even though I was dead wrong about my feelings). Really the video has a message for those of us who actually have faith in what taking a chance on something potentially meaningful can mean to us. It’s for people who still believe in real love and the power of it. It’s for people who aren’t afraid of what “they” have to say about it.

I think the end of the video is fitting as well. It leaves the viewer with the power to make up their own minds about what Alicia should have done…

And I think if I were in that position I would have done the Un-Thinkable…

Less of a stupid needy chick song like her “Doesn’t Mean Anything”, but a little harder of a track with a better message of ‘GET OVER IT.” Still sweet and still super emo… Typical Alicia. I’m still with you AK! Make something we can really rock to before the album drops homie!

Back to writing about Boats & Hoes…

alicia_keys_doesnt_mean_anything_artSo I get this new Alicia Keys song “Doesn’t Mean Anything” and it makes me think about stuff. Like having it all and it not really meaning much if you push the ones you care about or love away. It really doesn’t mean anything if you can’t share it with the ones you love, right?

Then I think; I’m a selfish ass nigga sometimes and I’m pretty much aware of my flaw… I can’t see past my own logic (at times) and my way of thinking and rationalizing things isn’t always what “society” would deem proper. So basically I’m different… But there’s one person who made me think past my “differences” and oddly enough as much as they changed me it still wasn’t enough to keep them around… So is that grounds to give up because someone I cared about abandoned me? Prolly not…

So yeah, Alicia…

It’s tough to lose people like that… It’s tough to lose period, but they say if something is worth caring about, it’s worth walking away from… That’s what we have to do sometimes and I’m no stranger to it… One conflict too many can lead to an end to it all. It may have not been meant to be anything, but it could have meant a lot at the time…

alicia_keysSo Alicia now that this person is gone… I ain’t gonna switch up my dreams of bigger and better because I can’t have them around anymore (like in your song)…  I start to see being alone in this shit now as only bringing me closer to a space I think I still need to be in… Because to be honest all I want is to have it all and whether that person is near or far, I know that they’re still with me in spirit and that’s all I really need.

And all we really have is ourselves and God… No one else really matters because we meet our maker at the end of the road regardless of what path we take…

Love, hate, care, provide, comfort, console, confide, be content, inspire, innovate… I still do all these things… I still have interests in people in my life. That’s the motivation… The drive… I haven’t ever turned my back or let people fade away who didn’t deserve it… I just keep going on and let God sort things out for me. I’ll always feel a certain way about  losing someone special to me, but it happened for a reason and doesn’t constitute me giving up on all the finer things life has to offer.

So ===> Dope song Alicia, but an EPIC FAIL on your message…

Can you believe I got all this shit out of one simple sad love song? Sometimes shit gets you thinking man… And if I can save someone from taking Alicia’s words to heart, I’ll feel like I did something good… We feel music sometimes and I felt this to the point where it got me to think… Not escape, but think… It made me think that maybe, entertainment is just that; something to entertain us.

Peace to Mileka for the hook up (check her music blog)… I saw it on her twitter before I got it in my email, so she get’s props.
