FINALLY! Some sort of answer!
Video director Melina Matsoukas said in an interview ages ago it’s not her fault ‘Put It In A Love Song’ has been delayed so long. It’s been finished. She doesn’t know why Alicia Keys and Beyonce haven’t released it and she was unsure if “they” ever will.
So, pressure has been on Alicia for years now why she spent all that money flying Beyonce to South America and having a big fancy video filmed during the country’s annual Carnival celebration but never released a thing.
Well, there was a 43-second clip that was circulating when PIIALS was set to premiere on BET’s Access Granted…
ESSENCE.com: Fans have been dying to know what ever happen to the “Put It In a Love Song” video you shot with Beyoncé?
Ohhh man! Y’all aren’t going to leave me alone about that! Sometimes with creative things [it] all comes together and it’s (makes perfection kissing noise) and sometimes things almost come together and it’s better to just leave it. So we love that song. We had a ball shooting the video. It just so happens that the whole thing, for some reason or another, didn’t quite come together so we just decided to leave it. And that’s what happened.
I’ve made it clear a thousand and one times I believe Alicia was upstaged by Beyonce so she decided to not release the video. So… y’all can take time out to let me know what y’all think because … ugh… just UGH.
