Alicia Keys assisted Jay-Z make his very first No. 1 tune back in 2009 with “Empire Mindset” — an achievement she now calls a present and a curse, since they both fear they can’t duplicate it.
Awaiting your approval to pack the Instagram Media.
Alicia informed E! … she and Jay think about doing brand-new tunes together all the time, however right away grow reluctant when they think about all the damage “Empire Mindset” did on the charts, and in the culture.
Launched in 2009, ‘Empire’ ended up being an instantaneous New York City anthem that went beyond around the world … going 3x platinum, soundtracking various projects in addition to the Yankees’ World Series winning run that year.
Alicia launched a follow up the next year, which was simply her variation of ‘Empire’ without Jay rapping.
Jay is no complete stranger to bailing out with dignity after knocking it outta the park. He and Eminem sanctuary’t rapped together because their 2001 transmittable “Plan” duet “Abandoner” … and after a 2006 Grammy win, he never ever followed up with Linkin Park.
Paradoxically, their partners Beyoncé and Swizz Beatz have actually connected for various bangers throughout the years. Seems like Alicia and Jay ought to bear in mind!!!
