Fresh: Amy Winehouse Feat. Nas - 'like Smoke'
'Like Smoke' acquired its UK premiere on Twin B's BBC Radio 1Xtra 'Morning Show', as he hailed Amy Winehouse as "one of the most talented, original and best popular music artists to emerge in decades." Featuring a verse from Nas, 'Like Smoke' is the first single from Amy's posthumous album release and was recorded after her unfortunate and tragic death in July...
"I be out in London, Camden/ Huntin’ for the answers/ Why did God take away the homie?/ I can’t stand it/ I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity," Nas spits, making reference to the late iconic star. It was known that Amy was a huge Nas fan, and she devoted 'Mr Jones' – a song on her 'Frank' album – to the New York rap legend. The album, 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' – which is a collection of new and unheard songs Amy recorded before her death – is set for release on December 5.
