“This girl is on fiiiiiire.”
Ever since we first heard the chorus to Alicia Keys’ smash first single, Girl on Fire,” we were hooked. The song’s video, which displayed some of the different roles women play in society, made us appreciate the song even more.
Earlier today, Alicia Keys tweeted out a behind the scenes video from when they filmed last month. In the clip, we see various scenes of the singer on the set while she explains what she was trying to do with her latest video:
“We decided to show me doing very everyday things. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich if you’re poor, where you from, what religion you believe in — it doesn’t matter, really, any of those details.
When you’re a women, there’s certain things you do all the time: you put your kids to bed, you make food, you’re cleaning the house, you are with your man — there’s just certain things you can relate to no matter what. So those are the things that we wanted to display and show.”
Alicia did a great job with this video. Check out the behind the scenes footage above, and look out for the album of the same name dropping on November 26th.
