Beyoncé’s version of Amy Winehouse’s hit “Back to Black” can be heard for the first time on this trailer for The Great Gatsby.

Beyoncé has teamed up with Outkast’s Andre 3000 on Winehouse’s song (which can be heard at 0.20 seconds), but it emerged the late singer’s father Mitch had not been consulted.

“First I have heard about Beyoncé and ‘Back to Black.’ Sounds like some of you don’t like the idea,” he tweeted yesterday. “I don’t know this but what if Beyoncé have £100,000 to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there.”

The soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s 1929 novel The Great Gatsby is being scored by Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z. “It's a very different take on 'Back to Black',” a source told E! online.

The blockbuster film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role alongside Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, was initially intended for release last summer. It hits cinemas next month.
