Alicia Keys - Girl On Fire (Official Music Video)streaming
Girl on Fire is the fifth studio album by American singer and songwriter Alicia Keys. Upon its release, Girl on Fire received generally positive reviews from music critics. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard with , copies sold in its first week in the United States, which was Keys' lowest opening sales for an album. The most newest, the most difficult, the most loving, the most dream-filled, the most breaking free. This whirlwind has definitely forced me to be who I am, to be free enough and brave enough to just not accept anything else-nor try to be anything else. So every way that I've created now is totally in a new space. It's more in a true space of who I am and what story it is that I'm trying to tell, what it is I'm going through, what the world is going through.
Alicia Keys' fifth studio album, a collection about rebirth and renewal, features production from Jamie xx, Swizz Beatz, and Dr. Alicia Keys ' fifth studio album opens the same way each one of her previous albums does: with a short, pensive piano piece. The quiet "De Novo Adagio" is meant to set the stage for the drama to come, but it handily accomplishes two other things as well. First, it reminds listeners that Keys is a classically trained musician, that she graduated from Professional Performing Arts School and studied at Columbia University. Her studies no longer determine her sound the way they once did, but a moment like this reminds you she's a serious artist. Keys excels at this kind of self-esteem anthem, but this one feels a little too familiar-- an old way of introducing her new self.
The song contains an interpolation of the drums from the song " The Big Beat " by American rock guitarist Billy Squier , who received a writing credit on "Girl on Fire". Keys recorded a three-track suite for the song, consisting of the main version in addition to two remixes. The first remix, titled "Inferno", adds two new verses from American hip hop artist Nicki Minaj , whilst the second mix titled "Bluelight" strips back the drums and piano leaving a sparse bass-led production and re-recorded "smokey" vocals. The song has sold over 4 million paid downloads in the United States. Alongside the main single, Keys recorded two other versions: the Inferno Remix which features new verses from Nicki Minaj and a Bluelight Remix which strips back the vocals and production from the main single.
Check out the Inferno Remix lyrics featuring Nicki Minaj,. She's just a girl, and she's on fire Hotter than a fantasy, lonely like a highway She's living in a world, and it's on fire Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away. Oh, she got both feet on the ground And she's burning it down Oh, she got her head in the clouds And she's not backing down. This girl is on fire This girl is on fire She's walking on fire This girl is on fire. Looks like a girl, but she's a flame So bright, she can burn your eyes Better look the other way You can try but you'll never forget her name She's on top of the world Hottest of the hottest girls say.
