Thought you were sick of hearing Alicia Keys and Jay-Z sing the same song, “Empire State of Mind” again, and again … and again?  Well, so were we, until we saw this AMAZING version of the song, staring Alicia and Stephen Colbert.

The Colbert Report, these two debuted their own version of this song, and, well, it’s just amazing.  While Alicia sings about, “A concrete jungle where dreams are made of,” Colbert gives his own take on living in the great city of NYC.  Please don’t give up watching before he says, “Hard Rock Cafe for the appetizer meal.”  Oh, and he dances.  GENIUS.

Alicia, how did you even get through this song without bursting out laughing?  Our favorite lines? “Suburban air much better for my asthma,” “Goin’ to the drycleaners, pickin’ up my khakis” and “I own this town from 41st to 47th.”
