Alicia Keys & Jay-Z - Empire State Of Mind

Lifestyle door Redactie

Alicia Keys gaat samenwerken met Jay-Z. Hun nummer gaat Empire State Of Mind heten en de opnames voor de video vonden vorige week plaats in New York.

De clip werd opgenomen in de hippe wijk Tribeca, vlakbij Ground Zero (waar vroeger de Twin Towers stonden).

Alicia is helemaal enthousiast over de samenwerking met Jay-Z. Ze zegt: 'Working together on 'Empire State of Mind' was incredible. I've admired Jay-Z for a long time. Reasonable Doubt is my all-time favorite album, period, and he's been on the scene for long time. I always figured that we would do some type of collaboration, and finally, it came together with this.
He reached out to me said, "I have this big New York record. I feel its right for us to do it together. It has this big Frank Sinatra, take-it-there feeling. I feel like you could really do something with it." I went by the studio, took a listen to it. I really felt the energy of New York all through it. It felt classic, it felt so good; the piano obviously was in there. I said, "I love it, so let's do it."'
