Empire State of Mind, Part II from The Element of Freedom

Jay-Z had a big hit with his version of Empire State of Mind, which featured Alicia Keys.

For her new album, Keys reworked the song for herself. My little girl was singing this all over Manhattan when we were visiting, so I found myself humming it myself. However, my youngest prefers the hip hop mix of the Jay-Z version, with the recitation of the NY landmarks and locations.

What do you think? Which version do you like better?
