Ladies...Ladies...Ladies...WHAT'S NEW...and got me all in love....this new Alicia Keys album “Girl on Fire”. And boy is it on fire! She definitely did her thang on this album. And I love it! And anytime I love something I spread the love.
This album is beautifully composed and has some of the most heartfelt lyrics I have heard in a long time. People can say whatever they want to say about Ms. Keys and her personal life but her music is on point. And besides we all have a past. And we don't want to be judged by it for the rest of life.
Now off my little rant and back to the album!
Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire
My favorite tracks are “Brand New Me”, “When It’s All Over”, and “That’s When I knew”. I love the entire CD but these tracks stand out the most to me. And you know why, they are love songs!
*Brand New Me- is a self-anthem about loving yourself and declaring to an old lover, “Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me, Can't be bad, I found a brand new kind of free.” It’s about embracing a new change within self and letting the world know that that you grown from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
*When It’s All Over-I love, love, LOVE this song. Basically she is telling her lover that when it’s all said it done when she leaves this earth the only that will matter to her is the fact she got a chance to love him! Beautiful!!! Oh and her son makes a cameo at the end! Absolutely adorable!
*That’s When I knew- is a love ballad about her telling her lover the first time she knew she was in love with him. If you are in love, married, or got a boo (lol) it will make you reflect on the first time you knew you were in love with your lover!
Another great CD I love is Vivian Green’s new album the “The Green Room”. To me this one of her best albums to date and it very uplifting and inspiring. If you love real music as much as I do then you will love and appreciate this album as well.
