It’s finally here!
Set to serve as a much needed push for the single, Alicia Keys has finally released the video for her new single ‘Girl On Fire‘, lifted from her studio album of the same name.
Does the visual live up to its hype?
You decide below…
Much like the cut itself, Keys’ visual is both rich in tone and texture, and will no doubt come as a welcome surprise to any who feared the clip would fail to live up to expectations.
A little ‘Sade-ish’ by way of look, we’re entirely here for Alicia shying away from serving a literal interpretation of the lyrics, opting not to play the rebel we met in the song but an altruistic ‘Mary Poppins‘ esque character.
A commentary on the ”Do It All‘ approach of the modern woman? Perhaps. All we know is, that save for ‘Karma’, ‘Girl‘ is easily her strongest video to date and has us itching to get our hands on its supporting LP.
