Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

The superstars came out for the super hero premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in New York on Thursday.

The self-proclaimed “King of New York,” Kendrick Lamar, was decked out in denim with a Yankees cap and white Chuck Taylors, while Pharrell Williams looked comfy in his signature hat, torn jeans, a Billionaire Girls Club hoodie, and Uggs.

During the after-party, Alicia teamed up with Kendrick, Pharrell, and composer Hans Zimmer for the first performance of “It’s On Again,” which appears on the movie soundtrack.
