Nas releases 'Cherry Wine' video featuring Amy Winehouse – watch

Late singer appears projected against a wall in the promo for the posthumous track

Nas has released the video to 'Cherry Wine', his track featuring the late Amy Winehouse – you can watch it above.

The late singer appears projected against a wall in the promo for the posthumous track, taken from Nas' tenth studio album 'Life Is Good'. The Jay Martin-directed video is the fifth to be made from the album.

Nas and Amy Winehouse got together for recording sessions in 2008. One of the songs, 'Like Smoke' appeared on the singer's posthumous Number One album, 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures'. Both tracks were produced by Salaam Remi, who worked on 'Frank' and 'Back To Black'.

Speaking to NME, Nas said the track 'Cherry Wine' came from "God, and Amy". Asked if Salaam Remi had the track from their recording sessions, he said:

Yeah, Salaam worked on her last album, and they were working. We don’t even have an explanation for how it happened. It was just magic. It just happened. It was supposed to happen. She made it happen.

Nas has previously said that he wasn't sold on the idea of recording the posthumous duet with Winehouse. Speaking about 'Like Smoke' he said, "Part of me didn't want to do the song… Amy and I share a birthday, so she was my sister. And she was just so much fun to be around. She would say things about well-known people in the industry that she didn't like and it would just crack me up… We were all hoping she would pull through and come back."

On November 12 'Amy Winehouse At The BBC', the new posthumous Amy Winehouse boxset, will be released. Three of the four discs are compilations of live performances on DVD and the other is a live CD album. It includes a selection of performances from Live At Jools Holland, a number of tracks filmed at T In The Park and other festivals and the documentary Amy Winehouse - The Day She Came To Dingle.
