A song as anthemic as Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” needs a music video to match. Cue auteur Hype Williams, who filmed the official clip you’ll find after the jump. Get ready for a ton of classy black-and-white shots of Jay and Alicia hanging out everywhere from Times Square to Harlem, surrounded by more than a few bright lights that will ins-pie-err yooooou.
Let me tell you, between “Empire State of Mind” and the way the Yanks are doing in the Series, this blogger is feeling so much NYC pride right now. Anyone with me? And how do non-New Yorkers feel about this song and video, anyway? Sound off in the comments section.
