Alicia Keys “Girl On Fire” Video Slow To Ignite With Fans

"Girl On Fire" is the latest from Alicia Keys who is returning after a few years off. The song is more upbeat than most of her first singles. So, why is the song slow to catch on with her audience and others?

After 3 days of release, the video has been viewed just over a million times. Sometimes, the songs and videos that are actually really good, get passed on for the new Minaj's and One Direction or The Wanted. Interestingly enough, the remix version of "Girl On Fire" features Nicki Minaj.

Alicia is now a veteran act, just passing the 10 year mark of being in the business last year.

The message of "Girl On Fire" is a positive one and hopefully will catch on with an audience, albeit a little bit slower than it should. We know Alicia will have those killer ballad's on her upcoming CD of the same name.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Why do you think the song is not catching on?

  1. I don’t believe it’s the video that isn’t catching on– it’s the song. As a male Alicia Keys fan, I was hoping for this lead-off song from her new album to be something moving, or a song that I can relate to. The song’s chorus isn’t very catchy, and only women can relate. If it were a better song, it would give people more incentive to check out the video.

  2. sounds alot like edge of glory.

  3. Thank you for sharing Andy….

  4. I’ll tell ya why…its just not that great of a song. Yes she is a beautiful women and the song is inspiring but the video is simply flat and uninspiring. The video should be about real women that are really on fire with their families, careers and dreams…my 2cents
