>Newport State of Mind removed from Youtube


The parody of Jay-Z and Alicia Key’s ‘Empire State of Mind’ by a Welsh couple has been removed from YouTube. A banner stating that ‘This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by EMI Music Publishing Ltd’ now sits where the ode to Wales once was. Having featured on the BBC, ITV and Sky the viral hit seems to have been a victim of its own success.

Anyway, Newport State of Mind lives on in other corners of the internet, and VN has found another posting of it on Youtube. It would be a terrible shame if the brilliant lyrics just disappeared, and this one even comes with a English to American translation…..so enjoy:
