Check out the official snippet for Beyonce and Andre 3000‘s take on the Amy Winehouse classic, ‘Back To Black‘.
Lifted from ‘The Great Gatsby‘ track, the pair’s unique version of the song should come as a welcome surprise to those who doubted Bey‘s ability to take on the raw cut, reworked to fit her tone.
We love it, so listen and weigh in below!
We’re just going to come out and say we’re not feeling Andre’s contribution…at all. Lacking the human touched that made the original what it is, we’d say this version could have done without it.
This, going some way to sully the gem that is Beyonce‘s voice on the track, packing a gentle honesty we met on cuts like ‘I Care‘ and ‘I Miss You‘ two years ago.
In all honesty, as genius as Andre is, we’re a little surprised that this is the route he took with this- experimental when simplicity would have sufficed.
Catch ‘Gatsby‘ when it hits the big screen on May 10th.
