"Girl on Fire," feat. Nicki Minaj

Sparse piano chords and thunderous, "Big Beat"-sampled drums — a sonic theme on the album, if there is one — anchor this hit single, courtesy of hitmakers Jeff Bhasker and Salaam Remi. It's one of Alicia's most powerful vocal performances, even if Nicki Minaj's gimmicky guest verses distract from her soaring singing.
