"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?
Alicia Keys has released what her album cover for "Girl On Fire" will look like and also dropped the release date.
She chose a black and white cover with her on the cover and her initials being the only thing of color used.
She announced the release date will be on November 27th.

This is VERY good news! Not only do we have upcoming albums from No Doubt, Green Day, and Pink on the way, Alicia Keys announced she is recording new material!
She posted this on AliciaKeys.com and talked about her growth not just as an artist, but as a woman;
It has been two years since soul singer Alicia Keys & producer Swizz Beats have been married. They celebrated with gifts...and one unfortunate car accident.
Both Alicia and Swizz are ok. His car, $200,000 Morgan Aero Coupe left with a messed up fender.
The couple are enjoying their anniversary and have been posting photos while celebrating. Check out the photos posted by our friends at Globalgrind.com.
Congrats to Alicia and Swizz and let the only other type of fender bending be in the bedroom.-DocFB
They did it. Again. Justin Timberlake was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote his new movie "Friends With Benefits" which opens this Friday night. While on, they did the "History Of Rap Part 2" and it was great.
It included N.W.A., Rob Base, Salt n Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Cypress Hill, DMX, Nelly, 50 Cent, Outkast, DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, Cali Swag District, Rick Ross, and Biz Markie along with others.
Check out the clip above for the History of Rap Part 2. We included part 1 below as well. It is funny and very cool.
Justin and Jimmy did it again!-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Fallon & Timberlake Killing It Again!

So is this a marketing ploy by The Forum? The forum posted on it's Facebook Fan Page yesterday that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt will be performing with Prince Friday or Saturday night. Well, Friday passed and..no Gwen. So that would mean....tonight, right?
Tonight will be the 7th night of Prince's record-breaking 21 Nights In Los Angeles run at the Forum.
What we can tell you is that Gwen rehearsed with Prince and the NPG at the Forum almost 2 weeks ago for several hours, so it is supposed to go down and was planned.
An unreliable blogger who shall go nameless reported that Prince and Gwen were performing that night when actually it was just a rehearsal.
We have a feeling it will NOT be the Prince and No Doubt songs in existence but actually one of Gwen's all time favorite songs by the Purple One..and perhaps a few more guest spots.
So far, Prince has had Ledisi, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, Chaka Khan, Sheila E., and Alicia Keys take part as his special guests either as an opening act or a surprise performer.
I am not going to lie, I would LOVE to see Prince and Gwen perform. Will it happen?
Follow us on Twitter tonight as we will be LIVE tweeting from show n will let you know if Gwen plays: Twitter.com/Drfunkenberry -Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Gwen Or Not, Prince Is Gonna Rock The Forum
Update!! Gwen did indeed perform with Prince, doing "So Far, So Pleased" with Prince for the first time,
She also came out during "Cool" and Gwen along with the entire No Doubt band and husband Gavin Rossdale came out to dance during "Jungle Love".....
