NEW MUSIC: Beyonce & Andre 3000 – “Back To Black”

The Great Gasby

Beyonce and Andre 3000 are paying tribute to the late Amy Winehouse with their cover of her hit song, “Back to Black.”  When it was announced that these two were teaming up to do the remake, the countdown began to when we would finally get to hear it.

Well the time has come, and the song has finally been debuted.  Mark Ronson produced Amy Winehouse’s version of the song, and premiered the remake on his East Village radio show over the weekend.  He said he’s “flattered and honored” that Andre 3000 and Beyonce would remake the song and he’s knows “Amy would be too.”

Amy Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, didn’t feel the same about the song, especially Andre 3000’s contribution.  After hearing the remake, he tweeted:

I honestly thought the remake was just okay.  It really wasn’t what I was expecting.  I have to agree with Amy’s dad because Beyonce would’ve killed it if she’d been given the opportunity to do the entire song.

Take a listen to the remake and the original below:

Sidenote: Throughout the track you’ll hear the East Village radio tag.

 

 

 

The new “Back to Black” is from The Great Gasby soundtrack which will be in stores May 7th.  The soundtrack also features appearances from Jay-Z, Florence + The Machine, Lana Del Ray, Q-Tip, and Fergie.
