A day after fans were treated to a teaser of Jay-Z‘s “100$ Bill” anthem, another track off his executive-produced The Great Gatsby film soundtrack has found its way online.
Although merely a teaser, Jay’s wife Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and OutKast’s Andre 3000‘s “Back To Black” Amy Winehouse cover is now floating online.
Beyoncé and André 3000 duet on their highly-anticipated remake of Amy Winehouse’s 2007 song “Back to Black.” A snippet of their dark and haunting collaboration, which appears on The Great Gatsby soundtrack, has surfaced. The OutKast legend takes his time rapping his verse, while Queen B burns slow with her seductive vocals. Due May 7, the soundtrack also includes contributions from Jay-Z, will.i.am, Fergie, Q-Tip, Lana Del Rey, Gotye, Florence + The Machine, The xx, and Emeli Sandé. (Rap-Up)

Beyoncé and André 3000’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” is the second bonus track, only available on the deluxe edition. (Miss Info TV)
