“Empire State of Mind” from Jay-Z’s upcoming album The Blueprint 3 features Grammy-winning R&B songstress Alicia Keys.
I’m not even from New York yet this song is still unbelievably inspiring. I’ve had it on repeat all week because it keeps me in high spirits. I love Alicia’s voice, I love the soaring musical background, and I love Jay-Z’s visually descriptive lyrics.
“Empire State of Mind” might not be single material but I’ll be surprised if it isn’t one of the best damn tracks on The Blueprint 3.
Something tells me that Jay-Z is going to deliver yet another hip hop classic with The Blueprint 3.
Keep your fingers crossed…
