Yesterday, Alicia Keys premiered not one but THREE versions of her brand-new track “Girl On Fire!” The track serves as the lead single off her upcoming album of the same name. Written and produced with Billy Squier, Jeff Bhasker, and Salaam Remi, “Girl On Fire” is very reminiscent of previous singles from Keys (No One, Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart) with it’s drum-heavy beat and delicate piano melody. The song doesn’t really bring anything new to the table but its undeniably a glorious track with Keys‘ stamp all over it. The Inferno version of the track featuring Nicki Minaj is a nice little change of pace but the song can do without her, I’m sure it will fare better on radio though. Alicia will perform “Girl On Fire” for the first time live at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday. What do you guys think?
