Jay-Z and Alicia Keys to Sing at World Series

Game 1 of the World Series takes place tomorrow night, and fans will be lucky enough to see two of the best musical artists perform. Both New York natives, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will take the stage to perform their single “Empire State of Mind” at Yankee Stadium.

If you’re familiar with the song, Jay-Z actually talks about the baseball team, singing: “Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game, Sh*t, I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can.”

He also said in a statement today, "As a die-hard Yankee fan, I'm honored to perform a song that celebrates the greatness of New York in one of our city's most important landmarks, Yankee Stadium.”

The New York Yankees will face off against the Philadelphia Phillies in game 1 of the World Series Wednesday, which will air on FOX at 7:30PM.
