Word is one of the reasons Alicia Keys decided to push back her new album The Element of Freedom is because she wanted to spend more time working on “Empire State of Mind Part 2”. Yep, her duet with Jay-Z was so monumental that the songstress and the rapper have decided to return to the studio to record the sequel.  And fans aren’t the only ones in love with the New York Anthem, apparently Alicia “fell in love” with the track the moment she stepped in the booth. She recently told MTV,

“Obviously, I’m very grateful to him [Jay-Z] for reaching out to me and for that type of ability to represent my hometown, like, that was crazy. So we went to the studio. I went to the studio, and … I fell in love from the jump.”

Think Part two can live up to the hype of the original?
