The Girl who sings about New York

I know I am slow to react about what a landmark track Empire Sate of Mind by Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys is.  This track has been slow to bed with me however I felt compelled to write about it after talking with my best buddy Tim Byrne of Kiss FM last night - who said the same. Normally when I travel to NYC Frank Sinatra’s “Theme from New York City” comes into my head. Now it’s has been replaced by Empire State of Mind.  

Words like “Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, There's nothing you can’t do, Now you're in New York!!!
These streets will make you feel brand new, the lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York” hit the mark.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is a landmark track.

Like the city -I love it.
