It’s finally here in full, Beyoncé and Andre 3000’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black.” The song’s been teased for a few weeks now and even though we’ve heard new tracks from Florence + the Machine, the xx, Lana Del Rey and Sia, the Great Gatsby soundtrack experience has felt incomplete without this one.

The new “Back To Black” was premiered on Friday night on East Village Radio by the song’s co-writer Mark Ronson and like a true BBC Radio 1 acolyte, it’s riddled with DJ drops and tags that remind just how exclusive and special the premiere was. But what about the song? Ronson says he’s “honored and flattered” that artists of Andre and Beyonce’s magnitude wanted to do a “chopped and screwed” cover the track and says that Amy would have been too. Sure, but what does Winehouse’s dad think? That’s the opinion we really care about.

“I don’t think she brings anything to it. I wasn’t asked for my permission if they could record it. They have got to pay for the privilege, which is what they are doing. I can’t tell you how much it is but it’s a lot of money,” Mitch Winehouse told The Daily Mail. Oh shit. Shots.

The Great Gatsby soundtrack is out May 7.
