Alicia Keys, Girl on Fire

On Girl on Fire, Alicia Keys emerges refreshed after motherhood and marriage by opening up her normally closed creative process to outside talents, including Jamie XX, Emeli Sandé and Maxwell. The overbearing title track aside, Alicia delivers some of her finest vocal work here, and the album's experimental, unexpected moments hint at exciting new directions for one of R&B's safest, most comfortable stars.
