The Amy Winehouse/Nas Collaboration "Like Smoke" Has Leaked
The posthumous collection of previously unreleased Amy Winehouse tracks Lioness: Hidden Treasures comes out next month, and today "Like Smoke"&0151;a track where Nas rhymes and Winehouse sings over a crisp, Salaam Remi-produced beatpremiered on Hot 97. The musical bed is apparently from 2008, but Nas's verse seems to be of more recent vintage (note the references to Occupy Wall Street and him maybe getting married again); Winehouse's vocal performance is yet another stark reminder of both her talent and how sad it is that said talent was overshadowed by the problems plaguing her life.
