The title track from Alicia Keys‘ new album, Girl On Fire, hits the net with Young Money’s deliciously devilish emcee Nicki Minaj spitting from the jump on the “Inferno” version of the single.
The first of three versions to come, including a rap-less take to come titled “Blue Light,” the multi Grammy Award winner’s new single “Girl On Fire (Inferno)” leads with solid, kicking drums and a subtle piano accompaniment, laced with two verses from Minaj.
“Girl on Fire is about new beginnings, new perspectives and fresh starts… stripping away all the bad energy in your life and taking full control of the reigns and how you want to live,” Keys says of her upcoming album number five, which will feature collaborations with Babyface, Emeli Sandé, Jamie xx, Pop & Oak and Swizz Beatz.
