Everyone is buzzing about the remake of The Great Gatsby which hits theaters May 10, especially because of Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance and Jay-Z helming the soundtrack. Here’s the first snipet listen of Beyonce‘s remake of the Amy Winehouse hit “Back to Black”.

While it’s been receiving mixed reviews, we wanted to offer it up to you to see what you thought. Beyonce and Andre 3000 slow down the original version for a molasses-thick tune. Instead of belting her verse out, Beyonce whispers in a sultry tone, while Andre 3000 flows over a nostalgic Aquemini-style beat.

Take a listen and tell us what you think in the comments below.
