Alicia Keys ft. Drake - Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready) (Remix)

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
40
Album:
The Element of Freedom

More than five months after Drake did some ad-lib work on Alicia Keys’ aching beautiful Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready), for my money the best song off her The Element of Freedom album, Drizzy’s back to finish what he started on Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready) (Remix). Here Noah “40” Shebib’s original, dreamy beat is untouched, as are Alicia’s haunting vocals, so the focus is entirely on Drizzy’s mic work. While vocally Drake certainly comes with it, dropping the kind of openly personal verse that’s earned him an army of adoring fans (“Rescue me from my destiny, I’m trying to live life and give you what’s left of me.”), I can’t help but be disappointed that he didn’t maintain the “unthinkable” theme more strongly. Then again, maybe I’m just mad at Drake because I like to listen to Un-Thinkable and imagine Alicia’s singing to me, an illusion his presence completely ruins. Hey, at least I’m honest. So how about it Booth? Original or remix? It’s decision time. And if you haven’t picked up a copy of Element of Freedom yet, shame on you. Shame.
