Empire State of Mind (song review)

Empire State of Mind is a great, upbeat song, which describes all the different aspects of the Big Apple. It describes different ethnicities of people, different neighborhoods, the intertwining of all the different cultures. This is a true love song to a city by two New Yorkers who feel at home in the “concrete jungle” of the Empire State. “There’s nothin’ [they] can’t do here!” The combination of Jay-Z’s rapping lyrics and Alicia Keys’ smoother vocals blends to create a catchy, fun song to sing and dance with!
