For many, the late Amy Winehouse stood as one of the most gifted talents of the modern era. As such, it’s only fitting that another artist also hailed in the same vein honors her with a tribute on the soundtrack to ‘The Great Gatsby’.
According to E!, the said artist is none other than Beyonce.
Full story after the jump…
Global icon, Bey, will tackle Winehouse classic ‘Back To Black’ with the help of Outkast’s Andre 3000.
The ambitious cover will sit alongside other cuts conjured up for the highly anticipated soundtrack, which is being executive produced by Mrs Carter’s husband Jay-Z.
Set to be released via Interscope, a label source who’s heard King B’s rendition said: “It’s a very different take on ‘Back to Black’”.
Directed by Baz Luhrman, the Leonardo DiCaprio fronted flick premiere May, as will its accompanying soundtrack.
Covers of the recently deceased are typically risqué, yet we’d be lying if we said we weren’t salivating at the prospect of what Beyonce and Andre 3000 have pieced together. As 2011′s ‘Party’ proved, the pairing of their talent often yields stellar results.
