Last night, Alicia Keys debuted yet another track from her upcoming album Girl on Fire (November 27) during a YouTube live stream/Google+ Hangout. During the two-hour listening session, Keys was joined by fans and celebrity friends, Maxwell, Emeli Sande, and Miguel via video conference.
Keys was in great spirits as she happily shared all the tracks from Girl on Fire, including a sensual and breathy ballad with R&B crooner Maxwell called “Fire We Make” that’ll certainly raise the temperature. “This is Maxwell’s first duet and I didn’t even know that,” she said. Maxwell jokingly told fans he was a vocal-stand-in for the singer’s husband, producer Swizz Beatz. The duet ends with a guitar solo from ESSENCE Music Festival alum, Gary Clark Jr.
Keys, who recently returned from a mini-tour of Europe, also shared that she would be taking Miguel on her next tour next year. “I think me and Miguel are going on tour together. It’s happening in March,” she said to a clearly surprised Miguel. “[He] is one of the flyest songwriters. The way you piece ideas and concepts and thoughts, you are really special,” she added.
But back to the baby-making music we love. Is “Fire We Make” making you burn up with passion?
