Is there anything Beyonce can’t do? We don’t think so. It looks like she’ll even have a part in the soundtrack for the wildly-anticipated film, The Great Gatsby! Not only that, but she will be doing a duet with Andre 3000 (of OutKast fame) for the track. And the best part? They’ll be covering the Amy Winehouse classic “Back to Black”. This isn’t the first time Beyonce and Andre 3000 have collaborated. They previously worked together on her 2011 single “Party”.
Bey’s husband Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack for Interscope Records. In a press release for Reuters, he had this to say of the project:
“As soon as I spoke with Baz and Leonardo, I knew this was the right project…The Great Gatsby’ is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to ‘Moulin Rouge!’ made it a masterpiece, and ‘Romeo + Juliet’s’ score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character.”
Although it was originally slated to be released this past Christmas, The Great Gatsby is now set to make its debut on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.
