After just a snippet dropped earlier this week, we finally get to listen to the full version of Beyoncé and André 3000’s selection from The Great Gatsby soundtrack, “Back To Black.”

As billed, the song is a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black,” but flips the song in almost a chopped and screwed style. The remake kicks off 3 Stacks harmonizing and crooning before Queen Bey closes things out over the groove produced by Hollywood Holt of The Treated Crew.

It’s a radio rip, for now, so forgive all the incessant chatter over the song. Actually, the guy with the British accent is actually Mark Ronson, who was crucial in introducing Winehouse to the American audience and produced about half of her breakthrough Back To Black album. Previously, the OutKast rapper and Beyoncé worked together on the song “Party,” from her 2011 album, 4.

The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which is executive produced by Jay-Z, is in stores May 7.  The Great Gatsby film is in theaters May 10. Listen to Beyoncé and André 3000’s version of “Back To Black” below.

Let us know what you think of this new version in the comments.
