[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alicia Keys[/lastfm] – “Empire State Of Mind”
We had to lead with a song that went wild on the airwaves. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys created the New York anthem, Empire State Of Mind, that exploded onto the scene in 2009. Everywhere you turned, this song was being played. In fact, it’s still a staple at most New York events.
