Beyonce has teamed up with Andre 3000 for a rendition of the Amy Winehouse instant classic ‘Back to Black,’ with this track being the latest sample of the Great Gatsby soundtrack, with the song premiering on the record’s original producer Mark Ronson’s EastVillageRadio.com radio show this weekend.
The cover is the latest teaser to be dropped from the Jay-Z helmed soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, with such notable artists as Lana Del Rey, The xx, and Florence + The Machine also slated to appear on the soundtrack. Although Mark seemed relatively happy with the reworking of his song, one person who didn’t seem to appreciate the cover was Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, who took to Twitter shortly after the song was aired to vent his frustrations. Clearly unimpressed, Mitch wrote a scathing critique of Andre’s delivery, writing “just heard the Andre part of Back to Black. Terrible. He should have let Beyonce do it all.”
