New Music: Drake f/ Alicia Keys – ‘Fireworks’

Alicia Keys and Drake

Alicia Keys and Drake get it poppin’ like July 4th on “Fireworks,” the opening track off Drizzy’s Thank Me Later. The “Un-thinkable” collaborators expressed mutual respect for each other in interviews with Rap-Up.com.

“He’s a great guy. I’m really proud of all the things he’s been able to achieve,” Alicia said of the Canadian star, who echoed the love. “She gave me like one of the best studio experiences in my life.”

Watch Drake perform “Fireworks” live (minus Alicia).

    Not really feeling this song. Alicia kind of ruins it for me. I wish someone with a much softer voice sang it, like Ciara or Beyonce. Dope lyrics nonetheless.

    the ciara fans are sometimes too much. let it go and enjoy the song for what it is without bringing up her name every single time.

    So far this is my opinion
    Best to Worst
    Give me some feedback
    1. Find Your Love 9.5/10
    2. Shut It Down (feat. The-Dream)9/10
    3. Over 8/10
    4. Unforgettable (feat. Young Jeezy) 8/10
    5. Miss Me (feat. Lil’ Wayne) 6.5/10

    Idk where to put this track though. Im not loving the beat but the same thing happened with Find Your Love and that ended up being one of my favorite songs ever. Just from lyrics and overall so far i give it a 7.5/10…. But please tell me what you all think

    The song is alright, i don’t like it as much
    as Miss Me, Find Your Love, Unforgettable and Over, but atleast is good.

    Alicia keys just dont fit this song at all. Ciara would have been better. her vocals and this song are up the same alley.

  25. part

    ciara weak ass voice is soft but not better sorry she can dance but CANT sing very well.///to me at least

    [Reply]

  26. anonymous

    I have to agree Alicia did okay, but Ciara or maybe even Janet would’ve been a better choice for this song.

  33. R

    alot of these songs sound like theyre unfinished, idunno though. Guess we’ll have to wait till june 15th

    I can actually hear Janet or Ciara on this song. But, this is a leak, not the actual master. Alicia is a far better singer then both of the aforementioned combined. This album will go platinum within two weeks if not less. Straight fire.

    “Do listen to music or do you just skim through it?”

    Love the song. Alicia sounds amazing.

    If Drake started rapping at the beginning of the song then let Alicia come in this would have been a lot better. Another thing that would of helped is Drake singing with Alicia near the end and they would have hit really high notes.
    Then it would have been fire but since they didn’t it won’t take off
