“We just had a party in the studio,” Keys said. “We’ve known each other for a lot of years, and obviously this is the first time we’ve been able to collaborate.”
Nifty! And even better—the song has leaked. Catch it below!
This is easily miles ahead of Beyonce’s duet with Lady Gaga on the remix of “Video Phone.” In fact, it might even be better than “Telephone.” Could take a couple more listens to determine.
That said, notice the continuing “text me on my cell phone” theme with the chorus. Credit Beyonce with single-handedly keeping the mobile phone industry recession-proof.
Speaking of which, Gaga and Beyonce’s “Telephone” debuted at #30 on the new Billboard Hot 100 chart, while Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” is at #1 for a third week. We’re guessing they probably all texted each other the good news.
