See Alicia Keys' new music video first: 'Blended Family' debuts on TODAY

In October, "Voice" coach and 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys released her new single, "Blended Family (What You Do for Love)," and now we have the first look at the music video.

The black-and-white clip follows families from all walks of life, but centers on Keys' own family — including husband Swizz Beatz, sons Egypt and Genesis and stepsons Prince and Kasseem.

But someone else joins them in the video — Swizz Beatz' ex-wife, Mashonda.

Her presence isn't really that much of a surprise given the deeply personal nature of the song, the lyrics which read like a love letter to Keys' own blended family.

"Hey, I might not really be your mother / That don't mean that I don't really love ya," she sings. "And even though I married your father / That's not the only reason I'm here for ya."

In another line of the song, she directly addresses Mashonda, telling the children, "Everything's over with me and your mama / Everybody here you know adores ya."

The video, like the song, also features rapper A$AP Rocky.
