The next leak from Nas’ forthcoming Life Is Good hit the Internet today. The track, titled “Cherry Wine,” is a collaboration with the late Amy Winehouse.
The song is a sweet (as sweet as Nas can be), jazzy, almost poppy six-minute jaunt through much lighter fare than we’re used to seeing from the Brooklyn MC, partly due to Winehouse’s vocals in the chorus. It’s pretty safe to say that this one’s for the ladies. Salaam Remi takes credit for production.
Listen to the song over at Stereogum. Life Is Good will be out July 17.
