Late British soul star Amy Winehouse looks set for another posthumous return to the charts – a previously unreleased collaboration with rapper Nas is to feature on his upcoming album.
The Rehab hitmaker was introduced to Nas by their mutual friend and producer Salaam Remi, and they teamed up to record Like Smoke, which was included on Lioness: Hidden Treasures, the first Winehouse project to be released following her sudden passing last year.
This week, new vocals from the tragic singer surfaced online on the track Cherry Wine, taken from Nas’ forthcoming album Life Is Good.
In the chorus, she sings, “Where is he/the man who is just like me/I heard he was hiding/somewhere I can’t see.
“‘I’m alone/and I realize that when I get home/I want to go to my red and my cherry.”
Life Is Good will be released on 17 July, a week before the first anniversary of Winehouse’s death.
