It took Pharrell’s magic on “I Know Who You Are” for me to care about Alicia Keys on a record again. Not saying that Girl On Fire was underwhelming, it just didn’t connect to me the same way her previous records did. With Pharrell back behind the boards for her, Keys gets a rather fiery verse from Kendrick Lamar on “It’s On Again”, a single from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. Smooth drums and a laid back bassline chase Keys around as her smoky vocals undo all of the power and fight Lamar’s verse ratchets up. “I am a lonely hero, trying to fight my battles,” Keys coos here in rather anthemic fashion. Stream the single below. The OST to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits stores on April 22nd while the film arrives on May 2nd.
