Nas drops the video for “Cherry Wine,” featuring the late Amy Winehouse, one the standout songs on the excellent Life Is Good album. As the photos from the set previously revealed, in the visual’s treatment the Queens rapper portrays a bartender in a vintage looking lounge spot while a bad looking model chick (that would be Brittany Dailey) eyes him from afar.
Images of Winehouse singing are splashed across a wall of spot via a projector as Barkeep Nas goes about his business of hooking up cocktails and rhyming about the search for his “a-alike.” Classy.
Spoiler: Nas gets the girl at the end. But you knew that.
Our only riff is that this is a shortened version of the song. Watch the Jay Martin directed video for “Cherry Wine” below.
