LISTEN: Posthumous Amy Winehouse Song "Cherry Wine" Released

Before the singer died last July at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning, she recorded this R&B single with Nas

Amy Winehouse has another song to share with the world. Before her death from alcohol poisoning last year, the soul singer collaborated with rapper Nas on a sultry, funky R&B single called "Cherry Wine." Listen below!
 



Winehouse is featured prominently on the song and sounds terrific -- a reminder of how talented she really was. The song's refrain, "life is good," has an added dimension of sadness after Winehouse's untimely passing. Nas thinks so, too, and has said that it's hard for him to listen to "Cherry Wine."

"It's a bittersweet feeling to do something with her now that she's not here," the rapper admitted (via the Daily Mail). "I'm happy... the sweet part is that we do have the music, fans have new music from her. The bitter part is that she's no longer here to really give it to us and to really live her music and for us to see her smile and hear her voice."

"Cherry Wine" will appear on the new Nas album, Life Is Good, which also features such artists as Drake, Mary J Blige and Swizz Beatz.

Amy Winehouse died on July 23, 2011, after a long battle with alcohol and drug addiction. She was 27 years old. Last month, her father Mitch Winehouse released a memoir about his daughter's life, in which he blamed her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil for her descent into serious substance abuse.
