It’s no secret that Amy Winehouse and Nas became good friends after she dedicated her song  ‘Me & Mr Jones‘ to him. For the songbird’s posthumous album ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures,’ the two reunite on the throwback-sounding track that was originally recorded in May 2008 with producer Salaam Remi.

On the song, Nas eulogizes the passing of his late friend as he raps, “I be out in London, Camden / Huntin’ for the answers / Why did God take away the homie? / I can’t stand it / I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity.” Elsewhere, the New York rhymer talks about how the recession is affecting him. “Yo, this recession is a test / It’s affecting my complexion / Misdirection my affection / My concerns are bill collections,” he spits.

Amy’s vocals still sound soulful as ever especially on the opening verse. “I never wanted you / To be my man / I just need your company / Don’t want to get dependent on / Your time then lose the way you love me / Like smoke, I hang around in the unbalanced,” she sings.

Amy Winehouse’s LP ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ will be released on Dec. 6 with portions from the sales of album benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
