VIDEO: Drake's "Find Your Love" vs. Alicia Keys' "Unthinkable"

Forbidden love is in the air...

Sometimes a song can be decent, but one lyric is what truly hooks you and solidifies its spot on your Most Played playlist. For Drake's beautiful R&B single "Find Your Love," which will surely be featured on many a summer playlist, it's the first line:
"I'm more than just an option/Refuse to be forgotten"
I feel like that's a mantra that both genders will respect and adopt, which is what makes it a killer line.

Watch the video below. It has a similar plot to Orlando Bloom & Zoe Saldana's 2004 romantic tragedy Haven.

Alicia Keys often has interesting plots to her videos, and she didn't disappoint this time around either. For "Unthinkable" she set the theme of forbidden interracial love in 6 decades, from the 50s to the 00s, and cast Chad Michael Murray ("One Tree Hill") as her Romeo. It has impressive attention to detail (ancient cellphones and hairstyle changes) and direction. It's videos like these that should be nominated at the VMA's.
