See the 'Empire State of Mind' lullaby video

Posted on

Empire State Of Mind

Spoiler alert: It’s pretty soothing!

Call this the music box version of Jay Z and Alicia Keys’s rousing New York City anthem — complete with a charming video that shows snapshots from a teddy bear’s tour of the Big Apple. First he’s out in Brooklyn, then he’s down in TriBeCa…

The song can be found on Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Jay-Z, the latest in a series of albums that transform rock and pop favorites into instrumental lullabies — trading thumping beats for gentle xylophones and turning down the volume “from an eleven to a two.” (See their take on the White Stripes’s “Seven Nation Army” here.)

P.S. There’s also a Kanye album.
