Nas‘ collaboration with late friend Amy Winehouse premiered on BBC’s Radion 1 on Tuesday night (July 3). Produced by Salaam Remi, “Cherry Wine” will appear on the rapper’s tenth studio album, ‘Life is Good’, which is slated for a July 17th release.
“It’s a bittersweet feeling to do something with her now that she’s not here,” Nas said about the jazz influenced track. ”I’m happy . . . the sweet part is that we do have the music, fans have new music from her. The bitter part is that she’s no longer here to really give it to us and to really live her music and for us to see her smile and hear her voice.”
