Beyonce To Cover Amy Winehouse Hit For Movie Soundtrack

Published: Monday 1st Apr 2013 by Sam

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.

    My word sorry beyonce but I have a feeling she’s going to ruin it, leave the classic alone bee

      I don’t get it. why not just use the original? Oh well. I guess this is what you do when you don’t have any strong classics of your own. but what do i know?!!!!!

  2. Mother Mariah April 1, 2013

    The Wine-O’s are gonna go a** s*** over this….

  3. Suicide Blonde April 1, 2013

    This is absurd, Beyonce can’t sing a Amy song, Psycho Girl.

    • Gilberto April 1, 2013

      Even Amy couldn’t sing her own songs. She always sounded dreadful and painful.
      King Bee is a better vocalist than Amy. Just know that.

      • Suicide Blonde April 1, 2013

        It doesn’t matter if Beyonce has a better vocal range, is the way Amy sang her songs, the kind of emotions that she provided with her voice, Beyonce can’t do that, Amy’s voice was unique.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        YES Beyonce is a better PERFORMER

        Amy Winehous slays beyonce ok vocals to death

        Theres a difference between god given flawless Rawless Talent than being trained to sing!

        Amy had Raw Talent she didnt need grooming school all the days of her life as did Beyonce

        and we have footage to prove beyonce grooming.


      • Gilberto April 1, 2013

        “Amy Winehous slays beyonce ok vocals to death”

        B****, please! Amy was not a live vocalist. Wait a minute, you stan for R******!!! Did you forget? What do you know about vocals? LOL. LOL. LOL. Even Rebecca Black is a great vocalist for your standards.

        “Amy had Raw Talent she didnt need grooming school all the days of her life as did”

        What a wacky excuse, b****. It’s the same thing I read from Katy Perry and Rihanna’s fans. The same excuse to explain their lack of talent and ability. Beyoncé, Tina and Michael (and many others) had the raw talent as well, but they mastered it to perfection through the years. American Idol and The Voice are full of “raw talent”.

      • JER April 1, 2013

        F*** you steampressed H** positive ho. Amy Winehouse overdosed on coke, crack, weed, pills, and booze sounds better than BeYAWNce on her best pre-recorded live track. Take an extra stadium with you while you sit c***!!!!

      • Dev April 2, 2013

        Sorry, i need to jump in here. I saw Amy at the start of her career and during the black to black era and she killed it both times. Now, nearer the end she wasn’t able to preform as well, but she was still a great artist with the limited music she released.
        Beyonce needs to leave well alone, and Jay – Z needs to know better. Beyonce doesn’t have the soul or depth to her voice to pull it off, if it was adele or joss stone maybe… whats Beyonce going to do next? Cover lauryn hill!
        This soundtrack is on course to be a mess, all i see is beyonce, rita and rihanna and maybe some melanie (if were lucky) when she should be getting Jill, Joss,

    • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

      Actually listening to Frank and Back To Back, Beyonce could pull alot of those songs off. Vocally Beyonce is just a better singer than amy. Stop confusing great music with better vocals. Amy’s Music>Beyonce’s
      Amy’s vocal skills<Beyonce's

      • Dev April 2, 2013

        I’m happy that you gave your opinion but i disagree.

  4. ShadeNOShade April 1, 2013


  5. Robyn Fenty (The STD infected goat) April 1, 2013

    Leave this alone Beyonce! Your loud ass will never be able to pull it off.

  6. HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013

    Amy is turning in her grave…This flop will destroy a great song…Oh lawwwd she can’t even let the dead rest in peace…

    • just sayin’ April 2, 2013

      I normally laugh at your comments and I do not want to come for you in anyway, but I do have an opinion. Give her a chance first. She may destroy it by OVER doing it, but she may tone it down and actually sing it right.
      I understand you do not use, but the truth is, your comments tend to seem shady all the time and that looks like a hater. You do not want to be that. Haters do not make sense, they say things just because/without thinking.
      Do not become that. Critique but do it right

  7. Fresh Navi April 1, 2013


    This stupid H20 person is dumb as f***!

    it claims beyonce has the number 1tour in the world yet billboards a credible source says its MADONNA!


    • Lola April 1, 2013

      Rihanna is performing in what like 6 stadium shows that doesn’t = STADIUM tour LOL! + she needs a big act to open for her to sale out those dates David G. 2nd her London show is NO NEAR sold out. And lets not get started how many unSOLD dates in the US lmaooooo!

      • Lola April 1, 2013

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        You are such a dunce diamonds WORLD TOUR is a stadium Tour GLOBALLY

        meaning she only does stadium… i can understand your uneducated so i tried to put it in a form that simpletons can comprehend.

        Visit Rihanna Now and Live Nation for the receipts every date is HPUSED AT A STADIUM


    • Gilberto April 1, 2013

      Hits don’t guarantee deals and Platinum albums. If you don’t believe me, ask it to your fave. LOL. DefScam can’t even find a sponsor for her flop tour. LOL.
      Diarrheamonds Tour better sold out ’cause Beyoncé and Jay-Z want some cash. Thanks for making the Carters richer.

      P.S. DefScam better stop giving away tickets and cancelling shows of this “sold out” tour.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        sUCKS TO BE YOU!

        The Tour is sponsored in part By HTC & Barbados Tourist Board as well as River Island

        Furtermore Lets Talk Rihanna Endorsements:

        Cover Girl
        Vita CoCo
        River Island
        New Face of Channel

        only one of Rihanna’ albums have failed to go latinum in the US and that her debute… so you tried C***

        Note That Defscam/ Jay-z who was head of the samming agency
        who is now the head of beyonce (once a scammer always a scammer only makes sense)

        Her debute was a compilation of Demo recorded in Barbados so Defscam invested no money in the album so you tried again hunty

      • Lola April 1, 2013

        Cover Girl & Nivea BOTH dropped her, sorry Lmao!

    • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

      Such an idiot. Your girl never does well tour wise. She only does well in the Uk. Americans have sense enough to know just how terrible a riri concert would be..I’d rather pay someone else’s high light bill than to waste money on her.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        aum Beyonce Highest Grossing tour is I AM

        she Grossed 110 Mill

        with 105 dates

        Rihanna Did 88 Dates and did 90 million for the Loud tour

        numerically and realistically 90 million and 110 are not that wide is it ? POOR DAT!

        B****** stay pressed tapping they S[ACE BAR! UGHH



        COVER GIRL NO…





      • Brandys Starr April 1, 2013

        Didn’t Ri nearly have to cancel some dates in Loud due to poor ticket sales though ijs.

      Im thinkn the same thing. I LOOOOOOOOOVE AMY and when she wasnt high the broad could sing. I love her emotion in her voice omg yall yet dont understand chile. So for Bey to take on THIS BEAST of a talent, then Bey is comn, not for scatps honey….but to take on an AMY WINEHOUSE she.comn for NECKS!! Amy was a BEAST and Bey GOTTA b comn to sit b****** down or she will embarrass herself. But im think she can do it..THISSS b**** finna leave a BLOOD TRAIL HONEY!! e-YEEEEESSSSSS!!!

  10. Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

    Whats even MORE funny is the fact that the Ratchet Hive

    keeps asserting that RIHANNA ALBUM SALES are 25 million… its funny how her album sales has been 25 million since the end of Rated R ERA!!!

    according to Vogue & BET & X-FACTor UK…. Rihanna’s WW ALBUM SALES IS 40 MILLIOn+

    I understand people may try to discredit it… however being educated we know when we try to REFUTE Claims

    we use credible counter claims

    so NAME ME YOUR SOURCE C****!!!


    5 Platinum albums in the US
    #1 albums in the UK AUstralia, Germany, France, Japan and so forth

    THE B**** is a global starrr

    beyonce only outshines rihanna on the local charts

    looks at the BBHOT100 & Takes That back


    im dying i cant with the delusive HooDHIVE

    • HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013

      That’s the hoodlum hive for you durrrrrling shady like their fav……They have no real facts, just low IQ hood buggers!

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        The uneducated dunce that plagues Beyonce (HIVE)

        are tragic indeed!

        Honey you be on point gurllll thats why they be pressed when you speak

        they a bit afraid of the truth…. we can understand why.

        When your fav was once on top and unfortunately has been dethroned it only makes sense to be bitter and ignorant doesnt it?

      • HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013

        @ Fresh Navi

        You are the truth durrrrling! They can’t deal with the facts so they present made up ones…I mean if my fav cam with something like bowl movements i would be pressed too! Can you blame them though? I mean talking to someone with such low IQ is like talking to well….Talking to beyonce herself…

      • HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013


      • just sayin’ April 2, 2013

        Come on people. I am not from the Hive but I know Beyonce is one of the IT girls. She is everywhere! Movies, Ads, (mixed feeling) music, campaigns, white house, etc. To not see that as success is FOOLISH. If Beyonce has the smarts enough to realize she is more than music, than why can’t you all on this site? Stop comparing her album sales, single stats….she has. That lady has made moves that will and has secured her children children’s future.
        I am one who agrees she is not the best singer, but damn the girl can hustle. You do not have to like her for that, but do not act as if that is not the true signs of a hustler.

    • Jewell April 1, 2013

      And Rihanna has 7 albums. Do the math.

      • HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013

        Beyfraud claims to be the queen though, but her numbers prove other wise….Shouldn’t see be slaying no matter how many albums she dropped?

      • Jewell April 1, 2013

        Why are you talking though when you call Rihanna the queen and her sales aint no damn better with her cheesy pop!

    • Lola April 1, 2013

      Well According to Pepsi , Beyonce has sold over 100 milion albums

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013



        BUT per anything BEYONCE farbrication is essential isnt it?

      • JER April 1, 2013

  11. soulmusiclover April 1, 2013

    god! sometimes i can’t stand this crew! they’re trying to make money off the dead talented girl! please leave her legacy alone! wtf?? she never cited beyonce or jay as some of her inspirations! why are they doing this?? was she their friend??? i don’t think so!! she had the kind of talent very few people have today! bey is also talented but amy was on another level of talent! please don’t start screaming over her tracks!

    • mob: I love my boy C Breezy f*ck you haters April 1, 2013

      NEVER!! She lived in the 60s! She cited folks like the Ronnettes, Marvallets, The Supremes, Dinah Washington, Queen Ella Fitzgeald, etc.

      Oh……ewwww and to think Jayz will have a hand in this soon to be hot ass mess just makes it that much worse. It’s like Drake theatening to produce an Aalyiah CD! 0_O

  12. Royalkev April 1, 2013

    Damn, some of ya’ll need to really hang it up! We didn’t even hear this song yet and people are already having meltdowns. Nas used Amy’s vocals on the background for Cherry Wine and it was his way of tributing her, it’s not disrespectful for Bey to do the same. It’s keeping awareness of Amy’s legacy high, so why find something wrong with it! Now if it was Adele …

    • soulmusiclover April 1, 2013

      please! actually nas was one of amy’s favourite artists! i don’t think she would disagree with collaborating with him! she actually recorded “like smoke” as a collabo with nas! she never claimed jay or bey as her inspirations! jay decided to jump on her “rehab” track back in the day! but they’re not on the same level at all when it comes to artistry! let’s face it

      • Royalkev April 1, 2013

        You may have a stronger appreciation for Amy’s music and that’s fine! It’s YOUR preference, I’m not comparing their artistry. What does tributing Amy have to do with who she considered her favorite artists to be?! If someone from the next generation is singing an Amy Winehouse song years from now that wasn’t around when she was alive, it would be the ultimate achievement. Artists want their music to outlive them!

  13. Jewell April 1, 2013

    We’ll see how true this is if it happens. I cant see Beyonce doing this to be honest.

  14. Tash April 1, 2013

    Ooo I cant wait to hear, Beyonce and Andre 3000 hmmm.

  15. Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

    I think it will be interesting to hear.
    Beyonce certainly has more range than Amy.
    I just think her voice isn’t gritty enough to pull it off.
    To the same two people posting as navy members..GTFOH with that stan s***. No matter what you say or do. The fact still remains if Rhianna Stepped on stage with beyonce…Beyonce would sing her under the f****** table.

    • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

      There is a VASt Distinction between Range & Screaming?

      figure it out 😀

      • Vee April 1, 2013

        Girl bye, don’t make me post a video that demonstrates Beyonces vocal range.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        OHH IM SCARED please let it be one of the Pre-Recorded one like the National anthem

      • Vee April 1, 2013

        Yep. But does that change the fact Beyonce can still sing? No.

      • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

        A navy stan can’t come for anybody when it comes to vocals.
        Beyonce doesn’t scream. Riri just has 2 ranges. Have a f****** seat

      • NY April 2, 2013

        I like Beyonces music but I must admit you struck a chord with this comment. While I won’t deny that she can sing, she scream like no other. Its hard to vibe to her music because she eventually ends up yelling @ you.

    • Secret voice April 1, 2013

      Beyonce can’t YODEL anyone under the table,so please!

  16. Lovebird April 1, 2013

    Watch as the fraudulent thief adds her name on the writing credits. If she can claim a writing credit for a very popular Christmas song, what makes you think she won’t do the same on a legends song.

    Anyway it’s interesting to see Beyonce get reduced to a cover artist, all this whilst there’s no new music out besides that bow down rubbish. Yes, whilst The song Rihanna wrote and featured on (run this town) is being featured on one of the biggest releases of the year (Battlefield 4), Beyonce is covering other artists music and will steal a writing credit while at it.

    I hope Beyonce puts her own take on it and doesnt try to mimick her, thats what I wont like. Because I believe Beyonce is capable of covering pretty much anything as long as she makes it her own. No doubt Beyonce can technically sing it but because Amys version was so unique theres gonna be no point trying to emulate it.

  18. Suicide Blonde April 1, 2013

  20. Vee April 1, 2013

    Beyonce gurl I love your voice for being you and I like it for different reasons in comparison to Amy. However I hope you do it justice and more because Amy had one of the most authentic, recognisable voices and I would hate to think of people downgrading Beyonces voice just because of a cover. Beyonce has a great voice for her own reasons but sometimes covers can make or break even the best of singers. I shall wait and see, excited nonetheless.

So what she can get out there and shake her ass and sing, but she is NOT an artist or a vocalist. Two things you need to pull of that song. Feel sorry for the girl…..

  26. Little Monster April 1, 2013

    I am intrigued. I like both Beyonce and Amy Winehouses voices for COMPLETLEY different reasons. So this should be interesting. I think Beyonce can do it. She’ll know she has a lot of expectations to live up to, and theres one thing Beyonce wont be made a mockery of, and that’s her talent, unlike a certain other product.

  27. Little Monster April 1, 2013

    And isn’t it ironic how its stans of artists who can barely hold a note point blank period that are doing the most.

  28. Gilberto April 1, 2013

    @Fresh Navi


    Didn’t Nivea kick R******’s ass? I’m pretty sure that it happened. She doesn’t have the deal with Cover Girl anymore since 2009, P!nk does. “New Face of Channel”??? WHAT??? LOL. You’re talking about a deal that doesn’t even exist. LOL. You’re so basic and dumb. “Gicinchi”??? What is that? Chinese food? LOL. You can’t even spell it correctly and you’re also again you’re talking about a deal that doesn’t exist.
    I can’t @ the delusion. You’re f****** faking deals. That’s pretty BASIC. Thanks for making me laugh. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. KIIIIII @ the fake deals.
    “River Island”? Never heard of it.
    R******’s best deal was Nivea’s, ’cause it was the only one who sponsored her tour. Plus, it’s world wide known brand. And she f****** lost it after a few months. LOL. LOL. LOL. Pathetic!

    P.S. Which one of them is sponsoring R******’s flop tour? Let me answer it: none of them!

    • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

      OHH BOO IM SOO sorry for the typo.

      everyone makes mistakes you should know that because beyonce releasing 4 was her biggest mistake

      you should be focusing your shady energy into RESUSCITATION

      Beyonce’s Career is in such dire need of that

      Beyonce Career-Ended Knowles

      • Gilberto April 1, 2013

        “beyonce releasing 4 was her biggest mistake”

        Yeah, because Super Bowl, sold out tour without any new single or album, massive deal with Pepsi and H&M were big mistakes. King Bee looks the bigger picture.
        She released 4 ’cause she’s Beyoncé. She doesn’t need a songwriting camp, DJs and hottest producers to make her career, she makes it by herself.

  29. LDN Chick April 1, 2013

    Beyonce you have a great voice honey. I don’t doubt her vocal ability at all. But that doesn’t mean you can cover everything. Im gonna try not to be pessimistic because I know Beyonce takes her craft very seriously.

      Really? So which Kelly or Michelle’s solo albums outsold Beyoncé’s? I’m waiting for your answer.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        anyways c*** so funny i remember you calling Loud Tour a Flop but Poll Star erased you.

        History often repeats itself i will Wait on the Diamonds World Tour Numbers to Shade your pitiful existence

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        the idea is Like Michealle& Kelly

        Beyonce’ real relivance was left in the Destiny Child era

        Ashanti died out leaving no compitition for beyonce thus she had a successfull solo era up ontil the arrival of RIHANNA


        STAY MAD C***!

      • Gilberto April 1, 2013

        @Fresh Navi

        You did not answer me, b**** . Did you run out of arguments, or did I drag your ass enough and you run out of words?
        YOU said that Beyoncé’s fans should thank Kelly and Michelle for Destiny’s Child’s sales. Why? Explain it to me. You stated it, now you need to explain it or regret it.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        because the only time beyonce album sales look steller is when her solo sales is combined with that of Destiny’s Child

        so sad i had to spell it out for you.

        o well…. this was sooo nice. IDHTT.

      • Gilberto April 1, 2013

        @Fresh Navi

        Okay. But you didn’t explain how Kelly and Michelle is involved on that. You really ran out of arguments, b****. I’m such HBIC. I just came and you don’t know what to say. LOL. I slayed you.
        Unfortunately R****** doesn’t have any girl-group to help her pathetic album sales, they’re pathetic and will remain pathetic. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL. LOL.

  32. mob: I love my boy C Breezy f*ck you haters April 1, 2013

    Woooooo…now hold the f*ck up! BACK TO BLACK is both a classic CD & Song. I don’t know how I feel about anyone tampering with Amy Winehouse’s music so soon after her death! 🙁

  33. DOSSOME April 1, 2013

    I’m actually worried for her.It’s the rawness of BACK TO BLACK she will fail to capture,however great her voice is

    • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

      FINALLY someone who really understand music and isnt vision clouded or tone deaf for that matter.

      • Grrr April 1, 2013

        ‘isn’t vision clouded or tone deaf’…. says a Rihanna stan?

  34. riqueen April 1, 2013

    Why doesn’t the b**** leave it alone instead of ruining it.

  35. mob: I love my boy C Breezy f*ck you haters April 1, 2013

    Okay, all jokes aside, I am becoming increasingly concerned about Beyonce this go around. I have been less then impress with her recent movements. Come with the original classic type Beyonce songs…RING THE ALARM, CRAZY IN LOVE, UP GRADE U, INDEPENDENT WOMEN, IRREPLACABLE etc….

    Bey did very well covering Etta James’ classic AT LAST but I’m not sure about her covering BACK TO BLACK & with “3 Stakes” (who I love) nonetheless!

  36. Gregson April 1, 2013

    As long as she makes it her own, I am sure she will be absolutley fine.

  37. Kandi Kuntz April 1, 2013

    I’m so proud to see so many Amy fans *cries* rip Amy

    • Gilberto April 1, 2013

      I’m happy to see that Beyoncé is making b****** pressed. That’s her job. Keep crying, b****, I love to see b****** crying.
      If they’re crying because King Bee is recording a Amy Winehouse’s song, they would be dead by now if it were Gimmicki Minaj instead.

  38. Brandys Starr April 1, 2013

    Damn some pessimistic ass people on here. You havnt even heard it yet. I swear people dragged her when it was announced she was doing Etta James. And she did an amazing job with that. Damn Im not even a Bey stan but on one thing about her she knows how to pull out the stops. Shes different to Amy, so hopefully this cover will be different.

  39. fatusankoh April 1, 2013

    you go bey that is good news you are the best singer ever I cant wait hatters have noting on you long live queen bey you are love by god good people and we your fans for life

  40. King B>Rihanna April 1, 2013

    the haters are always in full force.

    my main concern is that AMY had a unique voice and tone but more importantly she had a deep level of connection with her music, I actually feel her pain when she sings and Beyonce will have it hard trying to capture that.

    Amy may not have been the most vocally perfect singer but in of of itself those vocal flaws she had is what made her voice and her music so magical.

    Sidenote: Her first album is her best but band-wagon Amy fans would not know that.

    • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

      I’d love to hear beyonce do “Take the box” That’s amy’s best vocal performance ever!!

  41. Cream April 1, 2013

    Beyhive and hatters do y’all know what this mean!!!! Eta James was a crack head Amy crackhouse was a crack head So do Beyonce sing songs by crack heads??? Omgg I se a Whitney Huston tribute on its way By the king

  42. Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

    I’m sorry but a Navy member talking about vocals?
    Beyonce is talentless? Beyonce sings better than 95% of the singers now. Riri can’t sing worth s***.
    I’ll give it to you guys single wise. Vocally you should have nothing to say at all.

    • JER April 1, 2013

      Yer right. I give props where props are due. BeYAWNce has ‘the best pre-recorded tracks in the industry’

      • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

        Taking lines from “got 2b real” is SOOOO original.
        Beyonce doesn’t even pre-record that much..miss me with that f*****..

      • JER April 1, 2013

        Taking lines? I quoted the damn show you weak b****. You and your 4closed fave and keep the thievery going I don’t need to. And BeYAWNce’s entire career is pre-recorded GURLBYE

      • Pressed Navy April 2, 2013

        O JER..Don’t be mad baby!!!
        I did’nt mean to hurt your feeling..Clearly I did if that last comment was the best you could come up with!!!
        Jer You stan for the most basic b**** of them all.
        I wish riri would just lip it.

  43. boopboop April 1, 2013

    great…ANOTHER song for fattie bey to say she “wrote”. *eye roll*

  44. JER April 1, 2013

    The thirst.

    The reaching.

    The desperation.

    Oh… it’s just BeYAWNce.

    Once again BIONCI is trying to associate herself with a legend and pass their song off as hers. This is thirst for a Grammy and clawing for an Oscar. I woudn’t be surprised if a B. Knowles writing credit appears tacked on the end of the song. I mean, she DID put an extra ad lib on the last chorus.

    • Pressed Navy April 1, 2013

      The desperation to get likes on TGJ..
      I tell you the struggle is real for the haters.
      Amy winehouse is not a legend. She had one big album and died. No one paid attention to frank(Her best album).
      I bet you don’t even own anything by her. You navy stans are just pathetic

      • JER April 1, 2013

        I honestly don’t know what kind of Cajun voodoo you are using because last I checked you died from that steamroller accident you are just so pressed. I rebuke you and everything you can’t stand for.

    Amy didn’t want it to go down like this get ADELE CHRISTINA OR RITA to sing the song their voices are very soulful Beyonce um not

    Any time a post discussion is about vocals SAM should ban the entire Navy fanbase from that post. SMH

  51. King B>Rihanna April 1, 2013

    PRESSED NAVY is my type of b****. I’m so over the basic stan s***. People just spew hate and are incapable of using profound thought and have no knowledge about music nor how the industry oerates.

  52. King B>Rihanna April 1, 2013

    certain fan bases should know their place.

    no rihanna fan nor xtina fan or ciara should talk about vocals, you opinion right then and there becomes vapour.

    • Jas April 1, 2013

      Exactly! I know good and damn well that the Navy are not trying to go in lmfao. They haven’t even heard the song yet smdh. Just because Rihanna ruined the hell out of HERO. Does not mean that Beyonce is not capable of singing this song. Because at the end of the day, Beyonce is a really good vocal technician. Whether they want to admit it or not.

  53. XtinaaLovee April 1, 2013

    Is this a joke? This can be life right now… Beyonce singing an Amy Winehouse song??? Smh Beyonce needs to stay in her lane Amy would never approve of Beyonce singing one of her well written songs

  55. Emeral April 1, 2013

    Well vocals and everything aside, I think this is a great look for Amy Winehouses legacy personally. Shows how respected she was. S*** Beyonce doesnt cover everybody, especially not people of her generation, which Amy was. I hope Beyonce does a really good job, she definitely has the potential too.

  56. just sayin’ April 1, 2013

    1. it takes a beyonce/ rihanna post to get TGJ hits. That is so gay in a funny way.
    2. i wish people would stop saying beyonce can’t sing. um, i am a singer, and last i checked, beyonce can sing, she just doesn’t have that range her fans thinks she has. but, the lady can sing, she has major control and is a master at breathing & with a pretty tone.
    3. Amy was only bad live because she was HIGH. To say she was not a live singer is (my favorite word) FOOLISH. I have seen her live before she became “ill” she was unique. To tear her down for pain she was going through is just mean.

  57. Nichole April 1, 2013

    The fact that she’s even thinking about covering an Amy W. song is BEYOND disgusting, and disgraceful.

    Amy was a true artist, with REAL talent and artistry and didn’t need to steal from others by pretending to write songs she did not, robbing performances from others and then calling it a “throwback.”

    Amy was a soul singer, and what happened to her was very unfortunate.

    Beyonce should not under any circumstances be allowed to touch Amy’s music.

    Amy was a real singer, and Beyonce is only known for stealing, p**** poppin and faking pregnancies. She’s the biggest phony in the music biz.

    • Rosie April 1, 2013

      “biggest phony in the biz” with a S****** avi? Please.

  58. King13 April 1, 2013

    Love Bey, but she looks like an ostrich caught off guard in that photo.

  59. LDN Chick April 1, 2013

    @Emeral its actually true. People are just using this now say what Amy was and Beyonce isn’t bla bla bla. And I think Amy would be pleased her memory was being kept alive. She was also cool with Jay Z and Beyonce, I saw them hanging out at Jay Zs Glastonbury and it was rumoured she worked with him. I just hope Beyonce can make the song work for her, she has a great voice cos otherwise it could go wrong.

  60. Kate Middleton April 1, 2013

    I think Adele should do it instead.

  61. TheTruth Will Set You Free April 1, 2013

    Don’t f*** it up.

      A Rihfund stan calling anyone’s music “ghetto hoodrat anthems” when every h** in the slums of Detroit has HIVvvvvvv Song on their Android Tracfone.

  63. Music Soul Harmony April 1, 2013

    I like Amy and beyonce’s voice for different reasons. Obviously
    Beyonce is the last person I’d imagine covering a Amy whine house
    song cuz their voices are very distinctive for the genres and styles
    they do for their music or in Amy’s case, DID. But ppl should give it
    a chance before they just talk s*** but why am I not surprised with this
    Site? Always negativity everyday! Smh.
    Oh and Beyonce can’t sing? Lol that’s coming from a
    Nicki Stan? Girl bye. I guess only educated ppl that Stan
    for good singers would understand vocal ability in the
    first place since nicki has little to none. Poor dat.

  64. Bey Fan April 1, 2013

    you haters are stupid…. Beyonce did a hellva job covering Etta..dont why yall think she wouldn’t do Amy justice.

    She wont do it as good as Amy, no one thinks that, but she has the talent to do the song justice.

    And what kills me about the haters is, no matter how good of job she does, yall still gon hate. So save yall essay and rants, and just accept the fact that Beyonce is dat b****.

  65. Bey Fan April 1, 2013

    And are Rihanna’s fan commenting on someone’s talent……lmaoooooooooooo

    Now thats f****** hilarious

  66. Rosie April 1, 2013

    I want to see your fave at least attempt to do this. Bus as usual, she’s to busy sucking Fist’s A*** ridden c***.

    not a Janet Jackson reject Britney fan talking about REAL TALENT and REAL ARTIST.

    You stan for a basic shell so be seated.

  68. mc the placd to be! April 1, 2013

    I can’t at this Amy has a specific tone in her voice that is just to unique to emulate why of all people Beyonce? I kno jay is writing the score for the movie but damn she’s gonna ruin the song because all she does is just grunt she barely sings now and grunts are not needed especially in jazz sorry

  69. xedos April 1, 2013

    i bet she’s going to change a line on the song so she can get writing credit just in case it get nominated for a grammy.

  70. V2A April 1, 2013

    I don’t get all the negativity! If Beyoncé murdered Etta James’ songs and style, she can definitely slay Amy Winehouse’s songs.

    I speak as a Amy Winehouse major fan! I was there until the end and I listened to everything, not just “Back To Black”!

    I’m sure all of you can’t even name 20 songs from Amy Winehouse’s repertoire, and you dare pretending to be vocal critics now???

    Please have all the seats of the universe and get ready for King B’s return!

  72. King B>Rihanna April 1, 2013

    you know your basic when you think writing a line is the only part of song-writing.

  73. Mark111 April 1, 2013

    Bey will make it her own and do well with it. But I hope it’s a tribute more then a cover. I’m sorry, as an Aaliyah fan, no one should do covers of their music for a while, or the next generation, too soon. Maybe her and Adele should do the a LIVE tribute. (Cause we all know that Amy paved the road for Adele.)

  74. ZIGGY STARDUST April 1, 2013

    Please say it ain’t so! Amy had a very distinctive, soulful, yet vulnerable voice. I can’t even imagine ANYONE redoing any of her songs. And, as much as I love Andre 3000, I think adding a rapper to the track is a bad idea. My thing is this: If it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it. Why not just use the original song by Amy, if that’s the case? Why remake it? Even though Beyonce did o.k. with Etta James song, “At Last”, it still wasn’t as good as Etta’s. When you have a CLASSIC, there’s nothing that can beat it. It’s called a CLASSIC for a reason, and that’s why it should be left alone. Beyonce wants to make sure that she gets nominated for an Oscar on this too. We all know how much she wants that Oscar! Lol. Adele has gotten hers for, “Skyfall”, and now Beyonce wants to get hers too.

    • JOHNVIDAL April 2, 2013

      She can´t get an oscar for a cover. Oscars are given to songwriters of a new song for a movie. It has to be new and it only goes to the people who wrote the song

  75. danny b April 1, 2013

    All you hatin ass b****** are acting like Rihanna is covering a Whitney Houston song. First of all Beyonce is an amazing vocalist and artist. Just because she makes poppy dance urban songs at times doesnt mean shes not capable off incredible artistic vocal records. For every Single Ladies, Bootylicious and Run The World, she has a Halo, Flaws and All, and I Care. And lets not play dumb. We know she can pull off great covers a la Still In Love (Kissing You), The Closer I Get To You, Emotion, At Last, etc. B****** always wanna complain that she doesnt do heartfelt music and now she is (even though she always has) flop stans and trollers are having issues. Simply put, when it releases, since you all already have so much of an issue with it without even hearing a lick of it, DONT LISTEN TO IT when it does release (but we all know that wont happen). I swear the world just simply LOVES to hate Beyonce without good reason.

  76. . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

    Stans of a certain singles-based mega-flop can keep barking about Beyonce being an “average” singer. 8 Grammys for vocal performance alone speak for theirselves.

  78. Jennfer April 2, 2013

    Honestly,not to be rude but any Rihanna Fans (Navy) sholdn’t really be commenting on any other artists vocals when she isnt up to par with hers. (She smokes weed and that alone ruins your vocal chords Same with Nicki Minaj Fans and Britney Spears Fans. Beyonce has covered many legends song such as Tina Turner(Proud Mary),Barbra Streisand(The Way We Were) Micheal Jackson(I Wanna Be Where You Are)Etta James(All I Could Do Wac Cry,I Would Rather Go Blind) and has performed live with Stevie Wonder. On top of that she has 8 grammys for vocal performance so I think she is well suited to cover an Amy WineHouse song.That is why people CHOSE her to do it,she didn’t ask because she is one of the only female singers in the industry capable to do it. By the way,I bet half of you guys aren’t even Amy WineHouse fans or have ever even listened to One of her ongs,but since Beyoce is covering it you guys act like you know so much about her artistry and music. Give It A rest. In my opinion, Beyonce has the range,control,Charisma,and power to cover this song and make it her own to make a great tribute to Amy.

  79. the real xoxo April 2, 2013

    I cant wait! andre 3000 and beyonce covering amy winehouse.

  81. Aquarius April 2, 2013

    They said its going to be a ‘very different take’ so Im feeling optimistic. Looking forward to hearing it

  82. Aquarius April 2, 2013

    And I was impressed with her Etta James covers, lets not throw Beyonce under a bus before we’ve even heard it. The girl has a good voice and POTENTIAL unlike some of the people you stan for.

    Can´t wait to see this film. I ususally love every film Leo Dicaprio is in
    Well, this is really surprising. Like you all know I´m no Beyonce fan and I´m not gonna explain why now cos I´ve done it many times. But what the hell think that goat stans think they are??? Like seriously Rihanna is the biggest joke ever, she lacks in every department and if Bey is not original Rihanna sure isn´t either since she has zero input in everything related to her career. Enough is enough. It´s getting out of hand. You really think she is “slaying” b****** cos of her digital singles achievements????? LOL
    Btw: Back to Black is in the Top 10 Best and more iconic albums of the 00´s decade. That´s for damn sure and for music lovers and critics of all types. It´s undeniable. No Madonna, no Beyonce and not even my fave Mariah have that on lock the way Amy has it. Top10 of the 00´s: “Black to Black” for you

  86. just sayin’ April 2, 2013

    Dear People and TGJ
    (people)Beyonce, whether you like it or not, is the TOP it girl to go to for marketing. Why? because of how long she has been in the business and because she is still MARKETABLE. Now, I agree that she is running her end if that music does not change, but she still gets work. So, that says a lot about her hustle. At the end of the day, Beyonce is a business woman that knows how to make a move, even if it is the wrong move. While you haters make one move and that is to hate and take focus off your own s***.
    (TGJ) Seriously, silly “stan wars” makes a person seem uneducated on any level. We can say it is just for fun, but this fun has gone on way too long and has stayed the same for even longer. At least compare the proper singers. Post more on artist that people know nothing of. To be from or in the UK and only focus on Beyonce and Rihanna, for the most part, is beyond me. I am from the states and know the UK has TALENT. I call TGJ out for being afraid to change the game and take it back to delivering news on ALL and REAL music. Educate your followers on the art, or do you know anything truly about music?
    Do not just create a platform for “stan wars” while you count your coins and daily hits.

  87. Anone Ya April 2, 2013

      Christina Aguilera? Soul? I don’t think so.

  91. Lolz April 2, 2013

  92. Former Beyonce Fan April 2, 2013

    Beyonce fans are the most disrespectful fans i think ive ever seen.
    I Thought Rihanna’s could be rude, but some of you take the cake. You’ve believing this “Queen” hype too much and taking it way to serious.
    Disrespecting the dead, first whitney, now amy whinehouse.
    for what does beyonce pay your bills? does she put food on your table? is she paying for your college education? This idolization has gone far to far.
    Back to earth people, back to earth.

  96. lola April 2, 2013

    I am an Amy Winehouse fan and I love Beyoncé. They have two totally different vocal styles and voices. Those saying Adele or Christina should have covered the song are totally wrong. Adele has a gospel soul tone, but not a deep, emotional soul like Amy. Christina’s voice is shot and would sound too young and she doesn’t have deep soul like Amy either. I will wait to judge the cover. Beyoncé is a trained vocalist and her voice has gotten stronger with age.
