Beyonce, who is currently in Brazil for her “I Am…” world tour, will join her for the video to be filmed in Rio de Janerio.
“I’m a fan of the joy and swing of Brazil. And this is a good time to show the new phase are living communities of Rio,” Alicia told Brazilian online publication, O Dia, in a phone interview.
The video reportedly will see the two female singers dressed in Carnival-inspired costumes, including Swarovski headwear and feature scenes from the Sambadrome carnival parade. Serving as producer of the video is Alicia’s boyfriend Swizz Beatz.
“It’s nice that we just celebrate each others careers, that’s what the song is about, coming together to empower each other,” the Grammy winner said about “Put It In A Love Song” and Beyonce Knowles. “This song was meant for us at this time. We’ve become really good friends.”
“Song” is one of the singles taken from Keys’ latest studio album “The Element of Freedom.” Starting March 3, several concert have been mapped out to support the record. Robin Thicke will serve as a special guest on several select dates, according to celebrity-mania.com.
