The song will be included on Alicia Keys' upcoming December release "The Element Of Freedom" and feature a new verse from Jigga. The video for the first "Empire State of Mind" was directed by Hype Williams and Keys
described it as a masterpiece. "The way it’s put together, it is so New
York. You totally get it and understand it. It’s artistic. It’s hard.
It’s beautiful. It’s, like, everything," she said. "And definitely
getting to be in the middle of Times Square on my piano [with] Jay, representing our home city, is a triumph. It was unbelievable." [Jay-Z ft Alicia Keys – Empire State Of Mind (Video)- Watch Here]
