Penning a proverbial love letter to New York City, Manhattan native Alicia Keys performed a free concert in Times Square on Sunday night. The 35-year-old icon heavily teased the performance on social media leading up to it, posting a slew of videos to her 24 million Twitter followers expressing her own excitement for the impending show.
And not surprisingly, the living legend that is Keys absolutely slayed. Dominating the stage “in the center of [the] city,” Keys certainly ensured the concert lived up to her self prescribed hype by bringing out another pretty well known New York local.
Brooklyn native turned mogul, Jay Z joined Keys onstage to perform, “Empire State of Mind” and the lucky crowd could not handle it.
