Video: Alicia Keys – ‘Girl on Fire’

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys ignites the screen in the “powerful, sultry, and fun” video for “Girl on Fire,” the first single off her upcoming album of the same name. The Grammy-winning singer shows her superwoman strength as a mother, wife, and daughter in the Sophie Muller-directed clip (Beyoncé, No Doubt). Nicki Minaj does not appear in this particular video, but there may be an alternate version for the Inferno mix.

Alicia just wrapped her album this week. Due November 27, the follow-up to 2009’s The Element of Freedom is expected to feature collaborations with John Legend, Babyface, Emeli Sandé, Pop & Oak, Swizz Beatz, and a duet with Maxwell.

Watch Alicia take charge in the video below.

    @meme, you couldve just called her a woman…. shes not one of the artists that call herself a bitch so you should refrain from calling her that.

    @meme, I agree ^
    The only bitch here is the one that obviously forgot to raise you right to have some respect!

    @meme, This is horrible. She should have put the queen in the video from the beginning, at least she would’ve had a HIT on her hands. Alicia is a homewrecking bum.

    @MinajRuling2013too, Nicki is a HOME WRECKER. The media knows that Nicki was working way too close to Alicia’s husband during the Pink Friday album. -_- Get your facts straight and stop throwing random swears to make yourself FEEL better you incompetent HO!

    Kind of underwhelming. :( I still love the song though! Can’t wait for the album.

    MinajRuling2013too Reply:

    @C, It’s underwhelming because she can’t sing anymore, she’s lost the little talent she did have in 2002. Has Been status is near.

    @MinajRuling2013too,

    You and your little predictions. Just because you say it, sure doesn’t mean it’s true. You’ve been making your little accusations and predictions for years. Don’t you get tired of it? You haven’t been right yet. Everytime you say she is over and that’s it for her, she just proves you wrong. You should be embarassed to even comment. It’s hilarious how you let her get to you.

    Alicia is “on fire” in this video in a very good way. She is an amazing talent and has a beautiful voice. Many many blessings to her and I hope she continues to bless us with her incredible talent for many many years.

    I love Alicia…but im still not really feeling it like the build up to The Element of Freedom in 2009. To me, that was her most consistent album. I looooove How it Feels to Fly.

    The video is horrible, doesn’t match the song at all. Shouldhve shot the video for the inferno version instead and actually had FIRE in the video.

    @Ice, Nvm, apparently she may be shooting a second version.

    THIS SONG HAS REALLY GROWN ON ME, I LOVE IT!
    I GLAD ALICIA IS BACK WITH GOOD MUSIC, AND GIVING A MORE DIVERSE SOUND TO R&B MUSIC. WITH BRANDY BACK & BEYONCE, FAITH EVANS, & MARIAH COMING BACK, 2013 SHOULD BE A GREAT YEAR FOR R&B.

    deeJay Reply:

    @deeJay, I think this video fits in very well with the song. I really can’t think of a concept that will fit with the song. But the video seems to fit, with becoming women, or person. Don’t like nothing hold you back.

    Man, Alicia is a beautiful girl! And I LOVE this video!!! I didn’t even know what to expect for the video. It really has a good vibe to it. I don’t know how to explain it though. It kinda feels old, but new at the same time, the way it was shot. It’s a VERY beautiful done music video. I’ve always loved the song and now with the video, I understand the songs meaning and I love it more. Definitely one of my favorites. Repeat fasho. The part with the Alicia, daughter and Grandmother breaking veggies to the beat made me smile. Awesome job!!! Can’t wait for the album!!! :)

    LOVE IT
    This what these girls need to do esp the R&B acts. They need to be more artistic and conceptional when it comes to their music videos. we live in an age where visuals is just as important if not more important than the song it self. great visuals equal good sales. I love the lighting and it have a that SADE feel to it which i love. Kudos AK!!

    @RIHANNA NAVY, Ain’t nothing artistic about this video. And considering you Stan for Rihanna who lacks in originality, you need to STFU.

    I’m rooting for Alicia, as always, but the excitement hasn’t really hit me yet for her new album. Something about “Girl On Fire” is underwhelming to me. Everything from the song itself to the lousy VMA performance makes me think she can come a lot harder than this. This song still sounds like it could’ve been a bonus track off of “Element of Freedom.”
