In an interview with Essence magazine, Keys addressed the reasons behind pulling the highly-anticipated video, which featured herself and Beyoncé wearing colorful African prints in Brazil.

She said: "Sometimes with creative things [it] all comes together and it's [perfect], and sometimes things almost come together and it's better to just leave it.

"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."

Despite the nixed video, Beyoncé is set to headline Keys's upcoming Black Ball gala.
