State Of Mind

Jay z

Jay-Z earns his fourth Hot 100 No. 1, but his first as a lead or co-billed performer, as his collaboration with Alicia Keys, “Empire State of Mind,” tops the chart to be released today.

The rapper’s prior No. 1 entries came as a featured artist on Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker” (1999), his wife Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” (2003) and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” (2007).

“Empire” is also Keys’ fourth overall No. 1, as she previously reached the pinnacle with her debut single “Fallin'” (2001), her duet with Usher, “My Boo,” (2004) and “No One” (2007).

“Empire” takes Hot 100 Airplay Gainer honors as it rises 6-1 on the Radio Songs chart (up 15 million listener impressions to 109.5 million), the largest climb to No. 1 on that chart since Kanye West’s “Stronger” jumped 7-1 on the chart dated Oct. 6, 2007.
