Beyonce & Andre 3000 – “Back To Black”

By: 04.27.13  •  31 Comments

We finally get to hear Beyonce and Andre 3000’s cover Amy Winehouse’s classic record “Back To Black.” As one of the more anticipated songs from The Great Gatsby soundtrack, the two musical heavyweights make their best attempt to remake the song Winehouse originally wrote as the title track for her second album. Although I’m not entirely sure what to make of our favorite recluse crooning on the song’s opening, Beyonce effortlessly takes control during her portion and owns it with her sizzling vocals.

The newer version has a more contemporary feel, which is more than enough to separate it from Winehouse’s original. Yet, we have wonder if the natural character of the Amy’s voice and the old soul aesthetic of her music would’ve better matched the 1920s setting of the film itself.
