Beyonce and Andre 3000 attempt to cover Amy Winehouse “Back to Black”
Jesus for a lane for respective people to travel in. Earlier today I had the unpleasant privilege of listening to Beyoncé and Andre 3003′s cover of the late Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black. Lets just say as a music lover, a history buff and a fan of Amy Winehouse I was less than amused. The song lacked emotion and the pseudo semi-dubstep undertone of the song was completely inappropriate for the time period the film takes place in, as well as the actual sound of the original song.
Amy Winehouse hasn’t been dead long enough to remake any of her songs and letting a pretentious artist like “Mrs. Carter” who’s no where near as talented as she was is disrespectful. The music industry is going too far letting artist that aren’t qualified cover certain songs just because of their status in society. I’m over it. Some songs need to be left alone and Back to Black is one of them. Listen for yourself and comment below. If you ask me they could have left the song and the book alone. IJS.
