# 8

The same Beyonce that wants to approve of all pictures of her that end up on the internet.

# 9

well this guarantees i’ll never go to, was that their intention?

I don’t know I might have liked the song might not if that f-ucken EastVilliage.Com did interrupt the song every 2 seconds, **** that was annoying, but this sounds nothing like the oringal, better people then can say if that’s good or bad.

Beyonce’s voice sounds much more smooth. I like it.

This is offensive to Amy WInehouse’s memory, her fans, everyone. No, just no.

What the hell is this? I guess it’s supposed to have a sound that fits the movie so it’ll probably come off a little better when it’s used in the filmed scenes. But on its own, it just sounds horribly stilted and disconnected. Andre and Bey are talented with their own stuff, but they aren’t a good fit for this song.


@Lizz: @Lizz: uh, I think there are more things offensive to Amy’s legacy out there, than beyonce and andre rerecording her song.

I hate andre 3000 style everytime I see him in featuring with a singer I like He always ruined the song

Mark ronson how could be a part of this is Amy was your musical soul mate?? You betrayed the fans… Most of all Amy. sell out.
This blows- big time b.l.o.w.s.
SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! Flattered and honored????
I don’t think so…
That’s what we do on authentic s***
Your commentary on the song is s***!!

I like beyonce’s part!!!!

No wonder Amy Winehouse dad hated this verison he said that in inerview it’s crap from both parties! I’m glad Amy doesn’t have to hear this crappy verison.

People that say this to stop, and its a offense to Amys fans… YOU should stop.
This is a cover for a film, of course the original will always be better than the covers, and if you dont like it you dont have to listen to it, you still have the original one… Does this cover make you be awakened during nights?? Come one, show some minimum respect to other people’s work…
That’s not bad at all, it’s just a very different way to sing it, that’s all

@luis everyone can say and think what you want about the song …. it’s really bad .. I made ​​the ears bleed

i like it…Bey sounds fantastic…i would have left out Andre…

Well i don’t think we are going to forget which radio station it was played on LOL

What did I just listen to? They butchered the song. I love Amy Winehouse’s music. Please, don’t ruin it.

Ok, I just listened to Beyonce’s part. It was good. Then Beyonce should have been the only one to sing it. I heard they did not even get permission from Amy’s Winehouse trustees to use the song. But I think everything is settled now.
