This event seems to be the primary theme that has informed Keys’ latest LP and one that she holds dear to her heart. In the above Person to Person segment, Keys’ brings the interviewer into her “home away from home,” her studio space that is covered in art of musical and personal significance to the singer.
The Grammy-winner takes her interviewer into the very room in which she created her entire Girl On Fire album. ”It’s actually an anthem for working mothers, isn’t it?” asked the interviewer of the title track. “It is,” replied Keys, “”Girl On Fire” is really about being yourself.”
