Amy Winehouse’s Dad Not Happy with Beyonce Knowles’ Cover

Amy Winehouse’s Dad Not Happy with Beyonce Knowles’ Cover


The father of Amy Winehouse recently heard the single “Back to Black”. It was originally performed by his daughter Amy. He has now commented on his Twitter account that he is not too happy with it. He says that the cover was nothing much. In fact, it is in no way close to what his daughter could have performed. The Back to Black cover is a part of an album titled “The Great Gatsby” that is being produced by Beyonce’s rapper husband Jay Z.

Amy’s father is so unimpressed, that he insists that Beyonce should donate hundred thousand pounds to the Amy Winehouse Foundation in the UK. This would be roughly about a hundred and twenty seven thousand dollars. That’s a lot of money. We don’t believe for a moment that Beyonce would actually do what he wants. This is after all not her song. Rather, it was originally conceived by Amy Winehouse herself.

Back to Black is probably among the darkest songs ever in the history of rock music. It is true that Beyonce has not really been able to do a good rendition of it. We were all saddened by Amy’s death. It was indeed extremely unfortunate. We are sure that she could have done a much better job with this track. So we believe that it was probably unwise of Beyonce to do the cover of this song. Beyonce is certainly very good with the rhythm and blues genre. It is slightly unusual for her to try a gothic rock song. It is not known why Beyonce even chose to do a cover with this. Perhaps she tried this because she really liked Amy Winehouse. But this doesn’t mean she will pay the foundation like Amy’s dad wants.


Beyonce has not reacted to the comments, and neither has Jay Z, who by the way is busy in the production at the moment. The couple was seen holidaying in Havana, Cuba with their baby daughter Blue Ivy. Both Beyonce and Jay Z are happy with where they are in life currently. They are focusing on being a happy family, and of course are trying to do some amazing music.
