"Girl on Fire," Alicia Keys 

Inspired by Alicia Keys's son, Egypt, and her husband, Swizz Beatz, the single “Girl on Fire” lit up the airwaves as soon as it got released. The song is a triple threat for having not one, not two, but three versions: the original; "Inferno" featuring Nicki Minaj; and "Blue Light," a more sensual flip. The single was Keys's first release under RCA Records.
