In what appears to be a weekly routine, Carlos Serrano has another new mashup. Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem” meets Jay-Z’s “Empire State Of Mind” in this slow-paced single.
Again, I’ll be frank here: it’s nice to hear Jay-Z mixed together with a great Lana Del Rey track, but one listen to “Empire State Of Mind” on its own and you’ll realize that the original Jay-Z track was considerably more enjoyable to listen to. Lana Del Rey is great and all, but even I have to admit that Alicia Keys is pretty hard to one-up.
Still, hats off to Carlos for a pretty well-done track.
