Empire State Of…

by pieces of moments

Little known fact about me: I really love me some Jay-Z. I know. I have no idea why. It doesn’t seem to fit in the general scope of my musical predilections, but hey, there’s my confession. Another little known fact: I’m totally envious of Alicia Keys. She’s talented (a classically trained pianist, kids), soulful, and stunningly beautiful. So, of course, now that the two have officially collaborated on “Empire State Of Mind,” well, all bets are off.

Alicia Keys was on The Colbert Report, and Stephen Colbert, one of the most hilarious people on TV (next to Craig Ferguson), jumped in to rap in place of Jay-Z…and change the lyrics to reflect another side of NYC: Connecticut commuters.
