Misha B Sets This Alicia Keys Song ‘On Fire’

Here at SoulBounce we always bang on about the fact that if an artist is going to do a cover version of another artist’s song, they either need to switch it up a little or completely blow the original out of the water. Otherwise what’s the point, right? Well, while scouring the interwebs yesterday, we came across just such a cover. Our very own EIC, Butta, summed matters up best when she described her viewing of the video below as “That awkward moment when someone sings your new song better than you….”. The cover in question is Alicia Keys‘ new single (and title track from her upcoming album) “Girl On Fire (Inferno),” which is stripped of those thumping drums and Nicki Minaj feature, and transformed into a scorching acoustic number by former X-Factor contestant Misha B. There is no getting away from the fact that, in Misha’s hands, “Girl On Fire” takes on the soul and urgency that was lacking in Keys’ rather luke-warm original. [H/T: TGJ]
