When we heard that Beyonce and Andre 3000 were going to take on Amy Winehouse's 2006 heartbreak opus "Back to Black" for the Great Gatsby soundtrack, our excitement was tempered with some concern. Not that we doubt the abilities of either Andre or Queen B, but it's not easy to do Winehouse's tracks justice. You can sample a snippet of the track now, and it has us anxious to hear the whole thing - Beyonce's breathy vocals and Andre's half-rapped verses are interesting choices, especially over that disorienting beat. Check it out - the soundtrack's out May 7, the film May 10.
