Beyonce’s “Back to Black” Remake Hits Sour Note With Writer

After little Blue Ivy has been criticized for everything from her hair to her “boyish” attire, you’d think folks would give the Carter family a break right?


No Houston love was shown to Beyonce after a writer SLAMS the singer’s rendition of the late Amy Winehouse’s single, Back to Black, for the upcoming film The Great Gatsby.

Houston Press writer Angelica Leicht didn’t mince her words in the piece, filed under the categories WTF Island and Oh, The Humanity on the news site. I mean, the title of the post is I Hate Beyonce’s New “Back to Black” Cover With My Entire Soul .

Not ¼ of her soul. Her ENTIRE soul. Well damn…

Leicht goes on to say,

“Bey and Andre’s collaboration on Amy Winehouse’s throwback tune may very well have produced the worst song that’s ever been released, cover or otherwise.”

That hurt ME, and I ain’t even on the track with Bey and Andre 3000.


And to pour salt in the wound, even Amy Winehouse’s daddy spoke out about the track, saying

“I just heard the Andre part of ‘Back to Black.’ Terrible. He should have let Beyoncé do it all.”

Maybe it was hearing Andre sing the lyrics “I kept my di&k wet” that offended Mitch Winehouse’s ears?


What do you think of Beyonce’s version of Back to Black?

    Damn it seems like bey can’t get nething right with “new” music this go round. That’s what she gets for covering the track… Whole time her ass has yet to officially release new music of her own yet she out here covering tracks. She should have just done her own song

  2. ” of Fiddlestick’s monstrous final, that is nothing but an space of effect spell of doom for everyone caught in its wake. While League’s numbers do remain relatively strong (it still beat Wo – W after all), clearly a good portion of its player base is not happy with how the game is being maintained if so many people are already investing their time elsewhere. If you have this for the XBOX 360 and want to get all of the gamerscore points that you can for it, this will show you how.
