A tribute song for Amy Winehouse has been revamped by Kanye West from Amy’s sophomore set ‘Back to Black’. The rapper has re-recorded the title track from the album.

A source has said that it is pretty emotive and it is Kanye singing from the heart. In 2008, Kanye and Amy had a tough fight to win Grammy’s ‘Album of the Year’. However, they vied for the coveted prize against Foo Fighters and Vince Gill, but it none of them but Herbie Hancock who has brought the award home.

Yeezy and Amy have once again been settled in top position in the UK album chart with ‘Watch the Throne’ and ‘Back to Black’ respectively. However, the British singer has won while the rapper has to settle at No.3 behind Adele.

Unfortunately the singer was no longer around, but her music will continue to pour in. Besides this, a posthumous album is on a plan and a duet with Tony Bennett is ready to be released. The collaboration with the music vet has been made available for brief listen in a snippet known as ‘Body and Soul’.

‘Tony Bennett: Duets II’ album will be released where the song appears on his 85th birthday on 3rd August. The royalties for the song will be donated for charity to help those battling with drug addiction. He told that it is going to a foundation that her father started to teach all the young kids not to take drugs.
