Will ‘Empire State of Mind’ give Jay-Z a gigantic hit?

We should know more Monday, but for now, let’s just be happy that <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB002580" title="Jay-Z" href="/topic/entertainment/music/jay-z-PECLB002580.topic">Jay-Z</a> is ready to move on from ranting about studio trends like Auto-Tune. Of course, New York isn’t exactly a topic worth exploring (we’re not biased – we don’t want to hear songs about Los Angeles, either). Nevertheless, he’ll perform his “Empire State of Mind” with <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB002781" title="Alicia Keys" href="/topic/entertainment/music/alicia-keys-PECLB002781.topic">Alicia Keys</a>, and it’s a cut built for arenas.
