On September 6, Alicia Keys is set to blaze the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, where she will debut her new single “Girl on Fire.” A snippet of the powerful and infectious song can be heard in a promo for the show, which airs live from L.A.’s Staples Center at 8 p.m. EST.
“Girl on Fire” goes to iTunes and radio on Tuesday, and will appear on Alicia’s upcoming album of the same name, due November 27.
“My hands are on the keys. Tonight you will feel the power of my voice. Watch me reveal what’s within. I’ll show you everything. This is the moment,” says Alicia as she sits at the piano and performs.
Kanye West also appears in a separate promo, which can be viewed here.
