Bask In The Blue Light Of Alicia Keys! Listen To Alternate Version Of Girl On Fire HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteAlicia Keys

One version of a song just isn't enough for Alicia Keys!

The supremely talented singer recently debuted her second single and title track of her upcoming album, Girl On Fire (Inferno), featuring Nicki Minaj, but fresh on the heels of its release, has also come out with a RADICALLY different mix of the song!

Ch-ch-check out Girl On Fire (Blue Light)…(above)!

WOW!

Kinda reminds us of what she did when she re-worked her chorus on Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind into the full track Part 2 (Broken Down) for her last album, The Element of Freedom!

Which means, much like that effort, there's really no comparison between Blue Light or Inferno!

But don't her vocals just sound so much more RAW here?

LOVE!

What do U think?? Which version do U prefer?!

Filed under: Music MinuteJay Z

We LOVE super quirky mashups, so you know we HAD to give this one a listen!

While when you think of Jay-Z, you might not necessarily think of Lana Del Rey…but DJ Carlos Serrano has successfully blended those two together into one track!

Take a listen to Lana's National Anthem mixed with Jay's Empire State Of Mind, for what Carlos calls National Empire (above)!!

AHmazing! It's definitely going to be hard NOT to include this one on every playlist we have!

Excuse us while we press repeat…!! LOLz!
