Alicia Keys and Maxwell on a record together sounds like pure joy. “Fire We Make” is the latest single to drop from Alicia’s forthcoming Girl On Fire, and it sounds exactly like its title. Alicia opens the track with breathy vocals. It’s airy almost to the point of a whisper, only her voice is anything but quiet. Maxwell takes over the second verse with his beautiful high pitched range–his signature.
After they individually belt out the sweet sounds of passion the duo combine their pipes for a few runs. The sensual track is magical and alluring. The blaring trumpet and piano guiding their soulful voices makes for a heavenly song you could play on repeat for hours. The song ends with a divine solo guitar riff. Alicia and Maxwell seem like obvious collaborators because their voices mesh so well together. “Fire We Make” is going to get a lot of lovers in trouble.
