Kanye West records version of Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black'




While Kanye West will be busy pushing his collab with Jay-Z for awhile, he's taking some time to remember the late Amy Winehouse by recording a version of the singer's Back to Black -- hopefully without the rampant drug and alcohol abuse

"It’s pretty emotive," source told the U.K.'s Mirror. "It's Kanye singing from the heart -- with synthesizers." He met Winehouse at Paris Fashion Week a few years ago, where they apparently hit it off and stayed friendly.

West plans to perform the song in London soon for the 160th anniversary of menswear company Moss Bros. 160th anniversary celebration. Kanye sang the same song and Tears Dry On Their Own during the Big Chill festival in the U.K. earlier this month.
