Nas' collaboration with the late Amy Winehouse has finally surfaced. The track, "Cherry Wine," premiered on BBC's Radio 1 on Tuesday night.
Produced by Salaam Remi, "Cherry Wine" will appear on the rapper's tenth studio album, Life is Good, which is slated for a July 17th release. Nas and Winehouse previously collaborated on "Like Smoke," which appeared on Winehouse's posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures.
Nas recently told The Huffington Post that Life is Good was heavily influenced by the '90's. "Man, I wanted to go back into an area in music that really erupted from me," he said. "Of course, that’s the '90s era, and I focus on that, but the way I did it was, I made it for today."
Remi, Winehouse's close friend and frequent collaborator, also produced many of the tracks featured on Lioness. "I believe she has left something beyond her years. She has put a body of work together that will inspire an unborn generation," he said in October 2011. "I'm blessed to be part of that process, to have known that person and to continue her legacy with this album."
