Girl on Fire - Alicia Keys feat. Nicki Minaj

The Experience: What makes a girl beautiful? Loved? In Girl on Fire-Inferno Version, Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys tell us about two different types of girls. Nicki Minaj starts off the song by telling  us what some people think: "hot" is all that matters. But for Alicia Keys, what sets a girl on fire is the care and love she shows others...

Music Video: As the music video plays out, we see Alicia Keys caring for her mom, cleaning up the house, playing with her kids, and greeting her husband when he comes home from work.

My Take: All of us have to pick what's going to define us and the way we love the people we care about.

Ask Yourself: Are you on fire?


Intro [Nicki Minaj]

Spirit of Marilyn callin' me, audibly

Bawlin she, said that she would never leave

Continued to torture me

Telling me to come with her

Underneath my comforter

And she brought a gun with her

Pills and some rum with her

Tip 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 tryna be that
Haters wanna see that
But I got 'em aggy
Cause I win the gold like Gabby

(Verse 1:Alicia keys)
She's just a girl, and she's on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, longer 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

(Verse 2:Alicia Keys)
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


(Verse 3:Alicia Keys)
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

(Nicki Minaj)
Dear God, If you're here God
Make the fire disappear when they stare God
Take away my fear when they interfere God
Do you fear God? Cause I feel God
And in my backyard, that's a deer, God
And that's a horse ranch
And to my core fans, keep reppin' me
Do it to the death of me
'X' in the box, cause ain't nobody checkin' me

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
