Listen To The Amy Winehouse And Nas Duet "Like Smoke"
Posted by Newson 11/03/2011 at 9:50 AM
It’s hard to believe that the release of Lioness:Hidden Treasure, the posthumous album from Amy Winehouse, is less than one month away, and with it comes a first listen of one of the late singer’s previously recorded tracks. New York’s Hot 97 premiered the Winehouse-Nas duet “Like Smoke” on Wednesday, a gorgeous Winehouse original that was produced by Salaam Remi in 2008 and now pairs the late singer’s soulful voice with the words of the New York rapper. In between Winehouse’s chorus, Nas thinks about the future while grappling with the death of his friend (“I be out in London, Camden, hunting for the answers why the God take away the homie/ I can’t say that I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity. Just hope the big man, show me some courtesy”), reinforcing her idea that “like smoke,” certain relationships stay with you over time. Winehouse’s full album is out on December 5 and also includes acclaimed duet “Body & Soul,” with Tony Bennett. Listen below.
