After her pop filled 2009, Alicia Keys is preparing to release her fifth studio album at the end of November. For the lead single and today’s Song of the Day, Keys seems to have found the middle ground between her old soul feel and her new made-for-the-radio sound.
Enlisting Nicki Minaj to spice things up just a little more, Keys tells the story of a “Girl On Fire”. Over some pounding percussion, Keys’s voice shines as she moves up and down her vocal scale.
Listen to “Girl On Fire (Inferno Version)” below.
