A music video for Jay-Z's single "Empire State of Mind" has been clipped. The snippet arrives in black-and-white scenes, featuring the rap mogul performing alongside his collaborator Alicia Keys. As Alicia sings lines "New York, New York", NYC city view during the night is flashed.

The video was shot in Harlem, Times Square and Ground Zero of New York City earlier this month. It is directed by Hype Williams and hasn't had any premiere date.

"Empire State of Mind" comes from Jay-Z's September 11 release "The Blueprint 3". Recorded as a homage to New York, the song was first showcased live on-stage during 2009 MTV Video Music Awards on September 13. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will perform the song once again at 2009 American Music Awards on November 22.
