Shortly after Amy Winehouse passed away earlier this year, Queens rap deity Nasir Jones confirmed long-swirling rumors that Winehouse’s song “Me And Mr. Jones” had been named in honor of him, and that the two had been close. Winehouse and Nas never released any music together when Winehouse was alive. But Winehouse’s forthcoming posthumous collection Lioness: Hidden Treasures features “Like Smoke,” a track that features Nas — though Nas’s lyrics, which offer a heartfelt elegy to Winehouse and reference Occupy Wall Street, were most definitely recorded after Winehouse’s death. Salaam Remi, a frequent collaborator of both artists, produces. Hear the track below.
