Alicia Keys surprised her hometown with a star-studded concert in the middle of Times Square on Sunday (Oct. 9).
Presented by TIDAL, the show featured a slew of Keys’ famous friends, including TIDAL boss Jay Z.
Q-Tip started the surprises by introducing Keys’ new song “She Don’t Really Care.” Then Nas joined Alicia for a performance of the Q-Tip-produced “One Love” classic. As if that wasn’t enough, Questlove and John Mayer popped up for a rendition of “If I Ain’t Got You.”
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night came when Jay Z emerged from the back of the stage to perform their New York anthem “Empire State of Mind.” With bright lights surrounding them, the duo celebrated in the heart of the Big Apple.
