Alicia Keys to Record 'Empire State of Mind' Sequel for New Album

Alicia Keys and Jay-Z will re-unite for 'Empire State of Mind Part 2' which will be included in her new album 'The Element of Freedom'.

Apparently one of the reasons behind Alicia Keys' decision to push back her new album "The Element of Freedom" is to give more time for her to finish "Empire State of Mind Part 2". The singer has confirmed that she will return to studio with Jay-Z to record the song's sequel.

One of the singles in Jay-Z's latest effort "The Blueprint 3", the first version of "Empire State of Mind" peaked at No. 3 on Billboard Hot 100. The joint track has also brought luck to both Alicia and Jay-Z as they have been billed to duet for several major events, one of which is the upcoming American Music Awards.

Alicia Keys previously shared her gratitude upon being attached to the so-called New York anthem. "Obviously, I'm very grateful to him for reaching out to me and for that type of ability to represent my hometown, like, that was crazy," she told MTV. "So we went to the studio. I went to the studio, and ... I fell in love from the jump."

Alicia Keys will release "The Element of Freedom" across United States on December 15.
