Uh...

Beyoncé is going to do a Great job covering an Amy Winehouse hit.

E! News can exclusively reveal that the "Single Ladies" hitmaker has teamed up with Andre 3000 for a duet of the late singer's "Back to Black" for the soundtrack of the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby.

Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack, which will be released by Interscope Records. "It's a very different take on 'Back to Black,'" a record company said.
Hot! Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan's Gatsby chemistry
This is Beyoncé and Andre 3000 second time working together. They first collaborated on Bey's 2011 single, "Party."
The new flick, directed by Baz Luhrman, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. Originally set to be in theaters last Christmas, the release was pushed to this May.
Gatsby will have its world premiere as the opening night film of the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.
Wonder if Beyoncé will be performing at the after party.

Could just be April Fools but Jay also really liked Amy so... (why wouldn't they just use the original version tho)

He still stands in spite of what his Mars bar says.

Because they have to put their own spin on it. I guess anything to keep amy's music alive, right? I just hope dummies won't think it's beyonce's song... it's quite an improvement from bow down bitches grosss

This. So much this.

Edit: and Back to Black is my all time favorite of Amy's songs. Please, for the love of all that is holy, do not let Beyonce corn-up one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

Please tell me this is an April fools joke, it's not even that I think no one should touch Amy's music, it's just the fact it's Beyonce, what a mess

Awww hell no.


I was thinking the same thing. I'm sorry, I honestly feel like there is no reason for Beyonce to cover B2B. I already thought the movie looked pretty crappy; this just seals the deal. I prefer the original Great Gatsby and the original B2B.

It could be worse like Katy Perry...she could cover one of Amy's songs for her "fucking dark" album. at least beyonce can sing somewhat.

F*CK BEYONCE!

Why should these "illuminati" pop acts cover Amy? If they wanna profit off Amy, let's hear Amy sing Amy's "new music".

Like what someone already wrote "oh hell naw"

Life is like a pipe, & I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside. - Amy Winehouse "back to black"
Amy Jade Winehouse in my heart, mind, and ears FOREVER my lioness.

Horrible news. I know Amy's songs are going to be covered, but Beyonce is completely the wrong choice for this. I can just imagine her crucifying this Mariah-style - oh, my ears...!
