Description
With the bravado of songs like "Brand New Me" and the title track's guest rap by Nicki Minaj, urban soul songstress Keys kicks it up a notch. As Bob Dylan once said, “There's nothing about that girl I don't like."

"She's become a feminist icon for anthems like 'Superwoman' and refusing to push her booty, Beyoncé-style, when her music is where it's at. 'It's been a while/ I'm not who I was before,' are the opening lines [of 'Brand New Me'] … and she delivers them with the spine-tingling self-possession for which all those Saturday night talent-show contestants are so desperately reaching…. Her keyboard is, as ever, the intimate sound of vulnerability facing up to the big drums (and sampled sirens) of the big city…. The bold, soulful vocal – with just a scratch of a catch in the throat—refuses to let you go…. Title track 'Girl on Fire' has a thrilling energy and compelling melody."—The Telegraph

"'Girl' sands down the edges of Keys's nobility, but even at its most venomous, it doesn't bite. Its real pleasures lie in its subtle updating of her familiar diaristic piano ballads, its incorporation of vaguely modern beats and distinctive martial percussion."—Washington Post
