Alicia Keys & Maxwell’s “Fire We Make” Video: The Singers Are Burning Up

Yesterday (April 23) we saw the teaser for Alicia Keys‘ steamy music video with Maxwell, “Fire We Make.” For a 30-second clip, it featured a whole lot of sweating and wriggling. Keys has since premiered the full video, and it turns out it’s even more of a tease. For starters, now we know why it’s so dang hot in that bedroom: the video takes place in the ’50s (we think?) in New Orleans, and there was no air conditioning back then, silly! Keys and Maxwell do some acting to set up the story (B&B owner’s daughter fantasizes about one night of hot passion with B&B patron), but the two stars spend most of the tale separated. Many stolen glances ensue. Find out if they start that fire up top.
