Like many other artists, Kanye West is paying homage to Amy Winehouse by recording a remix of the late singer’s song ‘Back to Black,’ and hopes to perform his rendition in London for Moss Bros 160th Anniversary.

According to the Daily Mirror, West has already created the remix. A source for the paper calls it “pretty emotive,” adding, “It’s Kanye singing from the heart — with synthesizers.”

The rapper joins a long list of musicians who have paid tribute to Winehouse in one way or another. Coldplay performed a cover of ‘Rehab’ at Splendour in the Grass; Green Day were inspired to pen a new song about the star; and Adele recently dedicated a tune to Winehouse at her rescheduled concert date in Vancouver.

On Aug. 6, West went on a tirade at the Big Chill Festival, comparing himself to Adolf Hitler. The hip-hop star turned things around, though, by performing a special tribute to Winehouse in which he played snippets of ‘Back to Black’ and ‘Tears Dry on Their Own.’

West isn’t jumping on the bandwagon with his upcoming ‘Back to Black’ remix and performance. He says he met the “beautiful” soul singer during Paris Fashion Week a few years ago and was taken by her “amazing” presence.
