New Music: Alicia Keys f/ Maxwell – ‘Fire We Make’

Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, and Maxwell

Alicia Keys and Maxwell set off sparks on their electric collaboration “Fire We Make,” produced by Pop & Oak (Elle Varner, Nicki Minaj). The Grammy winners take it to the bedroom on the slow-burning duet off Alicia’s new album Girl on Fire, available November 27.

“With the fire we make, it’s getting hotter and hotter/ Like a moth to a flame, I can’t stay away,” coos Alicia, while Maxwell seduces as he sings in a falsetto.

It’s getting hot in here.

    I can dig this! Like someone stated earlier…I’m getting excited again about her album. I too was a little disappointed from what I’ve been hearing from Alicia Keys, but this **** here!!! HOT! Also…I thought Maxwell was suppose to make a pt. II to BlackSummersNight??? What happened to that? Does anyone know?

    This is the first single she’s released from this album that I’ve actually been able to listen to without cringing! This is beautiful. Great artists … great collab.

    This song is hott. It’s the best song I heard from her in years without cringing, I will agree Jill Scott, Ledsi would have made it more soulful. I will be buying this ONE song, not the entire album.

    This is BY FAR this best thing she has released so far from this era. This gives me hope for the rest of the album. “Not Even The King” is in far second place and everything else is just BLAH.

    Alicia, honey, please, “Girl On Fire” is doing amazing in charts, why are you releasing other songs? I guess this isn’t a single but you should be promoting your current single.
