Amy Winehouse - Nas References Winehouse's Death In New Song
Amy Winehouse's soon-to-be-released new song contains a poignant tribute from rapper Nas which was recorded after her tragic death.
The singer passed away in July (11) and her family plans to release an album of previously-unheard material next month (Dec11) in her memory.
Two of the songs aired on U.K. radio for the first time on Thursday (03Nov11), and Like Smoke - a collaboration with hip-hop star Nas - was one of the tracks played.
The song was originally recorded by Winehouse back in 2008, but includes a rap by Nas, which was recorded more recently, and he includes lyrics referencing the late star's passing.
He raps, "I be out in London, Camden/ Huntin' for the answers/ Why did God take away the homie?/ I can't stand it/ I'm a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity."
A portion of the profits from Lioness: Hidden Treasures will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up in her honour.
