Alicia Keys Performs "Empire State Of Mind" At The Queen's Jubilee & Brits Are Left Confused

Alicia Keys Performs “Empire State Of Mind” At The Queen’s Jubilee & Brits Are Left Confused.

Across the pond, people all over Britain have been celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee – a festival spanning multiple days in honour of Her Majesty’s 70 years served on the throne. Of course, it wouldn’t be a party without music, which is why several world-class entertainers, including Queen, Ella Eyre, Lin Manuel Miranda, Andrea Bocelli, and Diana Ross were commissioned to perform.

“Fallin” songstress Alicia Keys was also recruited, and she didn’t come to play, breaking out some of the biggest hits from her repertoire – though one of them (“Empire State of Mind”) was lost on the un-American audience.

“Call me old-fashioned, but why is Alicia Keys singing about [New York] when she is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in LONDON?” someone pondered online.

The mother of two must’ve sensed the audience’s discomfort during the show – or simply expected it ahead of time and prepared to change the lyrics – as she sang “Now you’re in London” rather than “Now you’re in New York” at one point.

Though her hit collab with JAY-Z may not have landed with everyone, many seemed to love her rendition of 2012’s “Girl on Fire” which some social media users have been speculating that she dedicated to Meghan Markle. As the R&B legend sang, the word “Superwoman” appeared repeatedly cast over Buckingham Palace.

Another standout moment that viewers loved was seeing Keys wearing a cape and saying “Yes Queen” right outside her Royal Highness’ home – check out more Twitter reactions below, and tap back in with 360Hausa later for more pop culture news updates.
