Amid her world tour, Alicia Keys unveils the official video for “Come For Me (Unlocked)” featuring Khalid and Lucky Daye.
The trippy visual features the three singers vibing out to the feel-good track. Keys shows off different looks in different settings, taking the visual to another dimension.
“Come For Me (Unlocked)” is lifted from Keys’ latest album, KEYS, which was released in December 2021.
The 15-time Grammy winner recently announced her plans to release KEYS II, the deluxe edition of Keys.
Set to arrive on Aug. 12, Keys II will include a new track with Daye titled “Stay” and a new song with Brent Faiyaz titled “Trillions.” The album will also feature two remixes to “In Common,” a song that originally appeared on 2016’s Here.

Keys appears on Faiyaz’s sophomore album, Wasteland, on “Ghetto Gatsby.” She exchanges her soulful vocals for a smooth, rap-inspired verse.
As noted above, Keys is currently on her Alicia + Keys World Tour. It’s her first headlining tour since 2013’s Set the World on Fire Tour. Thus, Keys is supporting her last three albums: Here, Alicia and Keys — with an emphasis on the latter two projects.
In an interview with Rated R&B, Keys shared the meaning behind her latest album. “It is an invitation for all of us to show up to ourselves and not hold back any part of ourselves,” she said. “I think a lot of us oftentimes feel like we have to dim it down and small it down. No, I refuse it anymore. I invite us all to refuse it because there’s a power and a special energy that we all have.”
KEYS is the New York native’s final album on RCA Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment. Keys has been signed to Sony Music for 20 years.
Her first album, Songs In A Minor, which was released on J Records/Sony Music, was added to the National Recording Registry in April of this year.
In the same month, she released “City of Gods (Part II)” as the first single under her independent label AKW Records. The piano-laden song is a stripped-down version of “City of Gods,” her collaboration with rappers Fivio Foreign and Kanye West.
Earlier this month, “City of Gods” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), selling more than 500,000 equivalent units.
Khalid has been making waves, as well. In May, he released his summer anthem “Skyline” and a vibrant video co-directed by Levi Turner and Cody LaPlant. “Skyline” is the lead single from Khalid’s upcoming third album. In December 2021, he dropped an EP titled Scenic Drive, which featured Keys, Daye, 6LACK, Ari Lennox, Quin and more.
Daye, who won his first Grammy this year, is gearing up for his U.K. and Europe leg of his Candydrip Tour. His headlining tour supports his sophomore album, Candydrip, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart.
