With the release of "The Great Gatsby" quickly approaching, Beyonce's song for the film's soundtrack has been released in full.
The 31-year-old singer recorded a cover of late singer Amy Winehouse's hit, "Back to Black," for the movie. A duet with Outkast alum André 3000, the "Back to Black" cover made its debut on Mark Ronson's radioshow on East Village Radio on Friday. Ronson co-wrote "Back to Black" with Winehouse, before her untimely death at the age of 27.
Beyonce's cover of the track (available above) has the singer crooning "We only said goodbye with words / I died a hundred times / You go back to her / And I go back to..."
The track has seen mixed reviews. Ronson called Bey's cover "wonderful," adding, I'm flattered and honored, I know Amy would be too." Unfortunately for Beyonce, Winehouse's dad is less than pleased with her rendition. "I don’t think she brings anything to it," Mitch Winehouse said recently, adding that the people behind "Gatsby" must pay a lot for the use of the song.
Led by Jay-Z, the soundtrack to "The Great Gatsby" also features The xx, Florence + The Machine, Gotye, and Lana Del Ray, among others.
