Reports that Alicia Keys had snagged Young Money’s First Lady Nicki Minaj for an alternate “Inferno” version of her upcoming “Girl on Fire” single circulated the ‘net yesterday. Barely 24 hours later, here we are with said track. You can get a listen of the drum-lead slow-burner below, which features two hot verses from the Barbie, as well as some impassioned vocals from the host.
“Girl on Fire” serves as the lead single from Ms. Keys’ forthcoming fifth LP of the same name (out Nov. 27). The original single will be released through iTunes on Sep. 4, and will include a Keys-only “Blue Light” version, as well as the “Inferno” remix.
