NEW YORK: Alicia Keys joins Google Plus Hangout to promote her latest music album “Girls on Fire” on the premier of her fifth vanture on Sunday.

Girl on Fire is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Alicia Keys.

The album, which was released on November 22, 2012, is Keys‘ first release with RCA Records.

U.S. singer’s last album was conceived shortly after Keys’ marriage to record producer and rapper Swizz Beatz as well as the birth of her first child.

The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 159,000 copies, becoming her fifth number-one album in the United States.

It was promoted with two singles, including the title track, which charted at 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Upon its release, Girl on Fire
received generally positive reviews from music critics.

According to the singer “Album’s recording sessions took place at Jungle City Studios and Oven Studios in New York, Chalice Studios and The Record Plant in Los Angeles, Geejam Studios in Jamaica, and Metropolis Studios in London.”

Speaking on how Girl on Fire was different to The Element of Freedom, Keys said, “I’ve stepped more into my business and really… taken control for how I want that to be. So every way that I’ve created now is totally in a new space. It’s more in a true space of who I am and what story it is that I’m trying to tell, what it is I’m going through, what the world is going through. And it’s really important for me to describe that and say that exactly how I see it, period. So, things are just new. The world is new! Everything feels like brand new to me.”

Lyrics of Alicia Keys’ Girls On Fire:


She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, lonely like a highway
She’s living in a world, and it’s on fire
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away

Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she’s not backing down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Looks like a girl, but she’s a flame
So bright, she can burn your eyes
Better look the other way
You can try but you’ll never forget her name
She’s on top of the world
Hottest of the hottest girls say

Oh, we got our feet on the ground
And we’re burning it down
Oh, got our head in the clouds
And we’re not coming down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Everybody stands, as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes
Watch her when she’s lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she’s a lonely girl
And it’s a lonely world
But she gon’ let it burn, baby, burn, baby

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Oh, oh, oh…

She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire
