Music Video of the Day: It’s On Again by Alicia Keys, featuring Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, Hans Zimmer (2014, directed by Rich Lee)


The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  It’s not my favorite Spider-Man movie, though that’s not the fault of Andrew Garfield or Emma Stone.  As a movie, it was clearly trying too hard to match the MCU without actually being a part of the MCU.  (Later, we found out that both the Garfield and the Maguire Spider-Men were a part of the Multiverse but, when they were first released, both sets of Spider-Man films were trapped in limbo.)  The script turned Electro into just another boring villain and Gwen Stacy was no Mary Jane Watson.

I can’t deny, though, that the soundtrack was awesome.  Alice Keys and Kendrick Lamar performed It’s On Again for the film and the music video, along with being a throwback to the type of music videos that used to regularly be made to promote the movies, also hints at what we were all hoping The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would actually be.

The video was directed by Rich Lee, who has also done videos for Eminem, Lana Del Rey, Billie Eilish, Maroon 5, The Black Eyed Peas, Norah Jones, Slash Michael Bublé, The Pussycat Dolls, and The All-American Rejects.

Enjoy!
