Watch Alicia Keys & Jay Z Do 'Empire State of Mind' Live in Times Square

On Friday, Alicia Keys announced that Here, her first album since 2012's Girl on Fire, is coming Nov. 4. And to boost the signal on her comeback just a wee bit, she did a surprise concert in New York City's Times Square.

Keys' gig included guest appearances from NasQuestlove and John Mayer, plus a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" as a birthday celebration for the late Beatle. But the reason we're all here is to see Keys bust out 2009's two-time Grammy winner "Empire State of Mind" with Jay Z. Go all the way from Marcy to Madison Times Square with the clip above.

Of course we're not gonna leave you without the rest of the pianist/singer/songwriter's big moments:

Alicia Keys' here is led by singles "In Common" and "Blended Family (What You Do For Love)," which just dropped on Friday and features A$AP Rocky.
