Talk about synergy. Last week, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys played “Empire State of Mind” before Game 2 of the World Series. This love song to the Big Apple has become a sort of anthem for the Yanks and has become a huge national hit. Right after the Yankee stadium performance, the video premiered. Strangely, as much as I like the song, and like Jay and Alicia individually, I’m just not feeling the video. There’s a certain excitement that’s missing from it. Jay, who has never been a great performer, looks really stiff. Eh, whatever. The crappy video doesn’t take away from the fact that the song is great.
