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).
I just heard the Andre part of Back to Black. Terrible. He should have let Beyonce do it all. Mitch
