Life is good when good music is in the air, and we’re lucky enough to have Nas and Amy Winehouse’s collaborative effort Cherry Wine on deck! I have my ups and downs with Nas, but he and Amy’s voices are so complimentary on this track, I temporarily forgive him for what he did to Kelis. But seriously– and all personal dramas aside– this song is a perfect summer track. With its mellow beat and jazzy stylings, I may have it on repeat for the next 25-45 minutes.
Nas featuring Amy Winehouse: Cherry Wine
Cherry Wine is off Nas’s forthcoming album, Life Is Good. And it has made me a very happy blogger today.
The song was recorded back in 2008 when the two artists (who were also good friends) shared a few recording sessions, completing tracks such as “Like Smoke” (which debuted on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness: Hidden Treasures).
Is anybody else falling in love (with music, with Amy Winehouse, with life itself, lol) as we speak/listen? I know there is a bittersweet vibe associated with the song, but the energy of it is all very positive to me.0
