JAY-Z is heading back to the top of the U.S. pop charts with a little help from Alicia Keys.
The pair's New York anthem Empire State of Mind is expected to take over at number one on Thursday (19Nov09) when the new Billboard Hot 100 countdown is released.
It will be both the rapper and Keys' fourth chart-toppers.
Thursday's chart will also bring good news to country act Lady Antebellum, the week after they picked up two honours at the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee - their Need You Know has rocketed up the charts from 22 to five.
