Alicia Keys is on fire. The Grammy-winning superstar released her fifth studio album -- "Girl on Fire" -- on Tuesday (Nov. 27) and two days later she hit "The X Factor" stage to perform the title song.
The album is something of a new beginning for Keys, and marks her first new release since the 2010 birth of her son, Egypt.
"It's definitely changed me," Keys says about becoming a mother. "I started to be more productive. Before I think I wasted more time just cause I could. I came in [to the studio] really focused about what I wanted to do. Even the writing on this record is deeper, it's more intimate. It's at a place I probably couldn't have written two or three years ago because I didn't understand it as much. I think [motherhood has] opened me up to access a deeper emotion than I did before."
