Alicia Keys Gets Fired Up

Alicia Keys’ highly anticipated return to the music scene is almost complete. Yesterday, via a diary entry on her official website, the 31-year old R&B beauty revealed the title of her upcoming album: Girl on Fire, as well a new promo shot.

According to Alicia, this album is about being open. “I’m not holding back anymore. I have felt like a lion locked in a cage. I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew. I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free.”

Alicia’s first single “New Day” was released on June 28th and will be performed by the singer for the first time live at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

As for that cover shot above, no doubt Alicia is trying to make a statement with her new sexy image.


  1. I thought new day was officially 50 cent and alicia just did a version of her own. On mtv they said she will be performing a new song called crazy. Love the album title though.

  2. I will never buy this home wrecker music again don’t date married men

    karma is coming!

  3. In other words this album is going to be about her glorifying her relationship with Swizz Beatz.

    I’ll pass. Her music hasn’t been the same in years.

  4. Alicia looks amazing. I love her music overall. I must admit I’m not loving New Day. As for her being a homewrecker, maybe..but Swizz Beatz is the one who was married and made vows not Alicia.Does it make it right , no is it all on her Nope

  5. I can not wait until she gets interview with Oprah. Thats when the truth going to come out lol. I like her new song.

  6. I will continue to support Alicia Keys for the music I have enjoyed over the years (fan). Her karma will strike regardless of what I know or believe! I hope Swizz gets it together and has grown up, given he had a baby or babies during his marriage b4 Keys! He’s the one at fault here for the most part and I don’t think a person has to wait for a divorce decree before they date. Relationships often overlap, that’s just a reality!

    Kanye and Kim dating and he isn’t being crucified! Double standards and this is cultural, our people, white celebs don’t wait on a decree and go public big time, a divorce can be dragged out (intentionally)

    Didn’t really care for the last cd, but I bought it anyway. I look forward to hearing this one! Alicia Keys has positively influenced young girls to study music, learn to play piano and her AIDS work is awesome when you look at the lives being saved and children having parents instead of being orphans! These artists sound like they have all the answers, when they don’t. Keys, Badu, Jill Scott, much is expected from them because of the substance of their music, but at the end of the day, they’re human beings too!

  7. I can not wait until she gets interview with Oprah. Thats when the truth going to come out lol. I like her new song.

    I doubt it. Alicia once quoted something Oprah told her as the reason why she didn’t speak out about the whole Swizz situation.
