Haha, Amy Winehouse and Nas' Collaboration 'Cherry Wine'

Thankfully, the two did manage to find time to work together before Amy's tragic passing in 2011. The rapper added a few verses to Amy's song "Like Smoke," featured on her posthumous release Lioness: Hidden Treasures, but he also used her vocals on one of his own tracks, "Cherry Wine," one of the standouts on his upcoming album Life Is Good.

The Remi-produced track is tragically good, a reminder that the world lost an unrivaled vocal talent in Ms. Winehouse.

Rapper Nas and the late chanteuse Amy Winehouse may have seemed an unlikely pairing, but the two were actually good friends, having been introduced through their producer Salaam Remi; It was even rumored that Winehouse's classic "Me and Mr. Jones" was written about Nas (real name Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones).
