Beyonce & Andre 3000 'Back to Black' cover

Beyoncé always brings something new to the table. After her recent release, ‘Bow Down’, something no one expected from her, she has now teamed up with Outkast member André 3000 to recreate Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’.

Amy wrote the track with friend and producer Mark Ronson about an ex-boyfriend, the song was released in 2007 and reached the top ten spot in charts worldwide. Set to appear on the soundtrack of Baz Lurhman’s upcoming movie The Great Gatsby, Beyoncé and Mr 3000 take a totally different approach to the Amy classic.

The cover has caused controversy in the media, being that no one believes anyone should have the right to recreate a track by the late singer, no matter who they are! Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, has also voiced his mixed emotions about the track, tweeting  that it is an “honour for people to want to cover Amy’s song”, though he didn’t seem too fond of Andre’s verse.
