Grew up in a town That is famous as a place of movie scenes Noise is always loud There are sirenes all around and the streets are mean. If I can make it here, I could make it anywere That's what they say Seeing my face in lights Or my name in marquees found down on Broadway. On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew Ladies work so hard Such a merlting pot on the corner selling rock Preachers pray to God.
Why See Alicia Keys?
The following month, they submitted it to Jay-Z's label Roc Nation , whose reviews were a discouragement. They later took the suggestion of an associate of EMI Music Publishing and resubmitted it to Jay-Z, who kept the "New York" singing part on the hook , changed the verses, and recorded it. The song originally featured Hunte on the hook, but when Hunte and Sewell-Ulepic were asked if they thought anyone else would be more appropriate for the chorus, Hunte suggested Keys. Mary J. Blige was also considered for the part, but Keys was chosen after Jay-Z heard the song's piano loop. The song was described by critics as an "orchestral rap ballad" with "crashing piano chords" and a "soaring" hook. It contains references to various locations in New York and its famous residents, while describing the city's essence. Profanity is present throughout the song and, although it is usually included during live performances, it was omitted during the performance at Game 2 of the World Series.
