Alicia Keys has released a throwback video for her new single, “Time Machine.”
In the nostalgic video, the singer plays an employee working at a roller skating rink, performing the funky, disco-tinged track while showing off her impressive skating skills. At the end, it’s all revealed to have been just an elaborate dream when Philadelphia rapper Tierra Whack calls Keys out for sleeping on the job.
“[‘Time Machine’] feels like a skating song to me,” Keys recently 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.”
It was recently revealed that Keys will host the Grammys for the second time. The 2020 ceremony, which recently unveiled their list of nominees, will take place in January.
