Do you love New York? Do you love this urban icon which has inspired thousands of artists of all time? Today, listen five of the best songs about New York and enjoy your summer 2015! Jennifer Lopez, Jay Z, The Strokes, Norah Jones and Frank Sinatra Wrote The Best Songs About New York.

‘Jenny from the Block’ by Jennifer Lopez. It’s a song recorded by American singer Jennifer Lopez, which features American rappers Jadakiss and Styles P; both members of The LOX. It’s a R&B and old school hip hop song, which lyrically is about Lopez not changing despite her level of fame and fortune, and never forgetting her roots and where she came from, The Bronx. (See video below).

Norah Jones

Norah Jones

‘Back to Manhattan’ by Norah Jones. Throughout her career, Jones has won numerous awards and has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. Billboard named her the top jazz artist of the 2000–2009 decade! She was born in 1979 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York.

‘New York City Cops’ by The Strokes. Genuine! Because The Strokes are an American rock band formed in New York City in 1998, consisting of Julian Casablancas (lead vocals), Nick Valensi (lead guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Albert Hammond, Jr. (rhythm guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Nikolai Fraiture (bass) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums, percussion).

‘Empire State of Mind’ by Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys. The song was written as a tribute to both artists’ hometown, New York City, and features a music sample of “Love on a Two-Way Street” (1970), written by Sylvia Robinson and Bert Keyes and performed by The Moments.

‘New York, New York’ by Frank Sinatra. A classic! But you can also try Liza Minnelli’s version. Hot!

“I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family – and I don’t think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.” Frank Sinatra.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
