Transcript of "Alicia keys - No One Video Analysis"
Within this PowerPoint I will be analysing a music video from the R&B genre.
The video I have decided to analyse is Alicia keys – No one.
The genre of this song is R&B
The genre of the video
The first shot in the video is the
insides of a very expensive piano
showing that the artist has a lot of
money and they can afford the
better lifestyle. I can also tell this is
an R&B video from this as this is a
typical instrument used in the R&B
genre many R&B artist play pianos

This is another shot to show the
audience that this is an R&B
video, you can see the artist is in a

as this has a sex appeal about it.

very little props however this is one
prop that is used.This prop is used

scene. She stands up and walks over to the wall and as

She does this in multiple
For this video there isn't really a narrative at all the video is just based
around the artist playing her musical instrument in different locations.
