I was a bit skeptical upon hearing that Beyonce and Andre 3000 have joined forces to recreate a very iconic song from Amy Winehouse ‘Back To Black’. After hearing the preview, I have to admit I liked the way the redid it, Beyonce sounds extremely sexy, and the slowed down R&B version could actually be mistaken for a whole different song. Although as much as I love Andre 3000, his feature was useless and bland, and the track definitely could have held it’s own without him.
All that being said, I prefer the original, but they did give it a whole different feel, and I respect that. On another note, The Great Gatsby soundtrack has some unbelievable contributions, and it is turning out to be absolutely amazing!
