Alicia Keys: "Empire State of Mind" (Live on SNL) (Video)

Alicia Keys has a new record out, titled The Element of Freedom, which she is doing her best to promote despite being eclipsed by the ubiquity of her collaboration with Jay-Z on “Empire State of Mind.” Fortunately, Keys’ record also features a version of the song, which she performed on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.


Keys’ version of the song strips away the hip-hop influence and works as a simple piano ballad, with occasional interjections from a drummer and a set of backing singers. She also performed “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart,” which is the by-now familiar second single from The Element of Freedom.

Still a great hook.
