New Nas Album Includes Posthumous Amy Winehouse Cameo
June 25, 2012
Nas' upcoming album Life Is Good features a cameo from the late Amy Winehouse on the track "Cherry Wine." The rapper has revealed the complete track list for Life Is Good, due out July 17. Nas appeared on last year's Lioness compilation of previously unreleased Amy Winehouse material on the song "Like Smoke."
Mary J. Blige will appear on the song "Reach Out," while Rick Ross cameos on "Accident Murderers" and Anthony Hamilton shows up on "World's An Addiction." Life Is Good features 14 tracks, with four additional songs on the deluxe edition. Another bonus cut, "Trust," will be an iTunes-only extra track, while a remix of "The Don" will be only available on the Japanese edition.
In a recent interview with MTV, Nas said producer Salaam Remi said Life Is Good reminded him of such classics as Winehouse's Back To Black and The Fugees' The Score. Remi worked on both those records.
