Andre 3000 & Beyonce To Cover Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black"
Amy Winehouse's 2006 hit is getting a new treatment courtesy of "Party" collaborators Andre 3000 and Beyonce, on a soundtrack executive produced by Jay-Z.
Next month, the latest film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. On May 15, audiences will hear in the movie, two musician/actors covering the late Amy Winehouse. Andre 3000 and Beyonce have teamed to perform "Back To Black," which will also appear on the film's soundtrack. E! News broke the story late last night when they confirmed this with film reps.
The Outkast emcee and Destiny's Child front-woman previously worked together in 2011 on "Party," from Bey's 4 album. "Back To Black" was the third single on Amy Winehouse's 2006 album of the same name.
Jay-Z is executive producing the soundtrack, which currently does not have a release date.
