Music Video: Alicia Keys - Doesn't Mean Anything
The music video for "Doesn't Mean Anything" was filmed on September 27-28, 2009. It was directed by P. R. Brown. The video was released on October 19, 2009.
The music video begins with Keys walking onto the balcony of her apartment, looking out at the city uttering the words, "This beautiful city feels empty. All the people in the world and you can still feel lonely. What's the point of having it all without the person you love. Sometimes you just need to start again in order to fly." The song then starts to play, with Keys playing the piano in her apartment, and also scenes of her sitting on the couch, and looking out of the window at the sunset. Various objects around the apartment then start to disappear, including a photograph on the piano of her and her lover. The scene then changes once her surroundings have all eventually disappeared, showing keys in a new outfit, in the middle of a desert-like setting, with her piano. She is then seen to walk up the path she is on, eventually leading to a mountain. Keys then climbs the mountain, and once she has reached the top, looks out at the landscape surrounding her.
In the behind the scenes of the video, Keys explained the representation of the mountain climb scene, "Because we all have mountains to climb in our life you know? And you can reach the top, you can climb and you can make it. And as you observe the landscape, the question is 'Are you gonna fly or are you gonna fall?'. And I'm gonna fly, and we all gonna fly"
The video ranked at #42 on BET's Notarized: Top 100 Videos of 2009 countdown.
