Beyonce Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” With Andre 3000; Falls Flat

Beyonce is covering "Back To Black" by Amy Winehouse. The song is from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack and features Andre 3000.

I want to like it. I really do. It is good...but not as good as Florence And The Machine's "Gatsby" song or Lana Del Rey's contribution. Maybe knowing that Jay Z is producing the soundtrack and that Beyonce appears on it makes me critic it more than I should. Maybe it is because that Amy's version is more powerful. It is a great tribute, but I take it as nothing more.

Thoughts?-DocFB

  1. I really like Andre3000, but what is he doing on this song?
    What a mess, is there still time to switch it with the original on the soundtrack.

  2. horrible as hell damn the both of the should listened to it and then slapped each other in the face just too awful!!!

  3. Probably the biggest SH*T of the year !

  4. what are you meant to do with this track. theres no beat or rhythm to dance to and you cant sit back and feel the powerfull lyrics like you could do with amys

  5. I love Amy and I like this cover because they changed it enough which makes it interesting. I’m glad she is being remembered, nice tribute

  6. ROFL … sometimes it really takes talent to fuck up a song. The whole first half of this track captures NONE of the essense of the original and while it marginally gets better when Beyonce finally comes in, by that time its too little too late.

  7. Ugh I really wanted to like this track too but its just god-awful in my humble opinion

  8. Wow. That’s pretty awful.

  9. its bad :-(

  10. HORRIBLE!!!

  11. I’m not liking this at all they really messed up this amazing song. I love Amy’s version a lot better they should have just used Amy’s version for the soundtrack in my opinion

  12. Amy’s version has vibe, this version is lifeless.

  13. Wow, that sucks!
