She continued: “The Unlocked side, I wanted to sample ‘The Originals’ to create a whole other sonic experience. So, [Mike Will Made It] and I connected and made magic. Together, they are a fusion of the worlds within me with the #KEYS as the main ingredient.”
Featured in the music video is Keys' husband, Swizz Beats, who revealed that it was shot on their 11th anniversary.
