ALICIA KEYS "Girl On Fire" 3gp Music Video

"Girl on Fire" is a song by American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys from her fifth studio album, Girl on Fire (2012). It was written and produced by Keys, Jeff Bhasker, Salaam Remi. The song is an R&B and hip hop ballad. American rock guitarist Billy Squier also earns a writing credit on the song for the inclusion of drums taken from his 1980 song "The Big Beat". Released on September 4, 2012, as the lead single from the album of the same name, "Girl on Fire" is Keys' first release under RCA Records following the closure of J Records, after a reorganisation at Sony Music Entertainment.

"Girl on Fire" was inspired by Keys' giving birth to her son Egypt and marriage to husband Swizz Beatz. Keys recorded a three-track suite for the song, consisting of the main version in addition to two remixes. The first remix titled "Inferno" adds two new verses from Trinidadian hip hop artist Nicki Minaj whilst the second mix titled "Bluelight" strips back the drums and piano leaving a sparse bass-led production and re-recorded "smokey" vocals. Keys performed "Girl on Fire" for the first time at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6, 2012, where she was joined by Minaj and American gymnastics gold-medalist Gabby Douglas.

The Inferno remix features Trinidadian hip hop artist Nicki Minaj. Based on the same melody and production as the main single, the inferno remix contains two verses from Minaj. The first two verses of the song were described as "understated" by Carl Williot from Idolator, with Minaj leading the remix with a rap. She raps "Took me on the balcony, telling me to jump with her/ Yeah I'm in the ghost but I ain't doing stunts with her/ I ain't trying to be that, haters want to see that/ But I got 'em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby". Minaj also talks about being haunted by the ghost of Marilyn Monroe.[1] In the second verse from Minaj, the subject matter switches to her fans the "Barbz" with the lyric ""And to my core fans, keep reppin' me/ Do it till the death of me/ 'X' in the box, cause ain't nobody checkin' me." Markman noted that in this verse, Minaj switched her delivery style to "more of a whisper". Entertainment Weekly's Kyle Anderson described Minaj's verses as "more prominent" than Keys' and noted that the production was influenced by garage music.

In the chart week ending September 7, 2012, "Girl on Fire" debuted on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at number 67. This in part was driven by 2.1 million radio impressions according to Nielsen BDS. The song rose to number seven in its fifth week, becoming her fifteenth Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The song has also become an international hit for Keys, reaching number one in Austria and South Korea, the Top 5 in the Netherlands, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Slovakia, and France, and a Top 20 hit in USA, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Italy, and Spain.
