Nasir went overseas to premiere this new Amy Whinehouse featured “Cherry Wine” record. Man this is some great music. Radio rip for now. Thanks, Big Business.
The late Amy Whinehouse graces the cover of Vibe‘s (August/September) JUICE issue alongside Kelly Rowland. Here’s an excerpt of producer Salaam Remi discussing her last days with the singer. The issue on newsstands August 16.
I’m in London now. I’m out here because [Amy and I] were supposed to go to a wedding today. And before I could get to her yesterday she passed. We were going to the wedding of Nick Symansky, who is the person who really found her. He found her when he was a scout at 19. And he was the manager before they got the Universal deal.
They went ahead with the wedding. All I could do was sit there and imagine how many jokes she would have been cracking with me. We were in the middle of working on the album. She finished writing the record. We just hadn’t recorded.
For the last couple of weeks we were video chatting regularly. I was just talking to Nas. Both her and Nas were born on September 14, so we were going to Barbados with all of them for her birthday. She really doesn’t look forward to her birthday, you know what I’m saying?
Big Boi gives us the Organized Noize & Dungeon Family remix of “Tears Dry On Their Own” by Amy Winehouse “Tears Dry On Their Own.” The track was on her sophomore album “Back to Black.” R.I.P. Amy Whinehouse.
