The 'Girl on Fire' songstress and the 'Fortunate' singer show how real R'n'B should sound with their new steamy and smooth duet.
Superstar singer, keyboardist, and songwriter Alicia Keys dishes out yet another awesome track, "Fire We Make", from her much-awaited fifth solo studio album, "Girl on Fire", which is set for release on November 27. This time, Keys teams up with neo soul musician Maxwell who adds that extra sexy "umpf" to the song.
The single definitely raises temperatures even in its first few lines where Keys goes into sultry twirls and vocal gymnastics. Even without actual lyrics being sung yet, listeners will surely be holding their ears close to their speakers to hear more of what is to come from the song.
Then, hearts melt to an overdrive as Maxwell belts in his signature breathy falsetto and silky runs that take the song's theme of hot, fiery love into a whole new romantic and seductive level. Keys tries to keep up with the killer bedroom voice of Maxwell as she passionately delivers the lines, "It's getting higher and higher/ It's the fire we make it's the fire we make/ Getting sweeter, and sweeter/ Like a night to a day/ I can't stay away, say is, no no..."
"Fire We Make" was produced by Keys in collaboration with songwriting duo Pop & Oak. The track easily gets nods for its classic R'n'B vibes and stands out as one of the greatest vocal performances from the "Girl on Fire" LP.
