For the clip, Alicia Keys said she was inspired by Spike Lee's '80s movie, 'School Daze'.
Previously only a preview, the video of Alicia Keys' "Teenage Love Affair" has now come in full length. The Chris Robinson-directed video was serviced to BET on Wednesday, April 23 few hours before its schedule on its 106 & Park show.
Keys said that the clip that was shot at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey is inspired by Spike Lee's 1988 film "School Daze". To Today Show's Matt Lauer she said, "It's an homage to Spike Lee's 'School Daze. You know that feeling when you first fall for somebody? You can't get enough of them."
"Teenage Love Affair" is the third single from Keys' charting album "As I Am". The LP is currently being promoted in a tour alongside Ne-Yo but it has just been announced that Keys has canceled two shows due to swollen vocal chords.
Her rep said that the Tuesday's gig in Pittsburgh as well as the coming Thursday concert in Cleveland have been axed. She is expected to return to the stage on Saturday for a performance in Colombus, Ohio. Earlier last week, her supporting act Jordin Sparks had also pulled off from that April dates due to the same throat problem.
