Song of the Day: "Cherry Wine" - Nas ft. Amy Winehouse
I was never really a fan of Amy Winehouse's music, I knew the lady could sing but I dunno her soulful sad music about chemical dependency and addiction just didn't tickle my fancy.
This mix that Nas has gotten behind is smooth, just smooth. It uses this breezy beat mixed with Winehouse's sultry vocal hook. It's like a song from a totally different era, something you'd hear in a movie from yesteryear where the protagonist is listening to jukebox while smoking a cigar while playing a game of cards with a table of strangers.
Anyway, this is my song of the day.
