Mitch Winehouse has said Andre 3000's part in Beyonce's cover of 'Back To Black' is "terrible".

The song was originally recorded and released by his daughter Amy Winehouse on the hugely successful album of the same name. However, Mitch Winehouse, who previously said Beyoncé "brings nothing to the track", has now tweeted his disgust at the former Outkast rapper's contribution, after the full song aired for the first time on Mark Ronson's radio show yesterday (April 27).

He wrote:



The track is part of Jay-Z's official soundtrack to the forthcoming Hollywood version of The Great Gatsby which also features The xx, Jack White, Florence + The Machine and Lana Del Rey. The album was executive produced by Jay-Z with the rapper revealing his own new track '$100 Bill' on the release.
