Braided Beauty To Bold Bombshell: Alicia Keys Releases ‘Girl On Fire’ (Check Out 11 Moments Of Her Style Evolution)


Alicia Keys is a modern day Jane-of-all-trades: she quadruples as a talented musician, singer-songwriter, record producer and actress. Today, she released her fifth studio album Girl On Fire, which she hopes will “empower” and “liberate” her fans.

Alicia’s latest album still maintains her signature soft ballads with a few uptempo tracks like “New Day” and “Girl On Fire.” We will definitely be adding it to our stocking stuffers.
