For today’s Viral Video of the Day, we’re going to take a look at some music in film.

It’s been announced that Beyonce and part of the Outkast duo, Andre 3000, recorded a cover of the late great Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black”.

The song was recorded for upcoming movie The Great Gatsby, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. The film hits theaters May 17th.

The pair have already worked together once before on a track called “Party,” which appeared on Beyonce’s latest album, 4.

I’m super excited to hear it because I’m a fan of Amy Winehouse’s work and a big fan of Andre 3000. Andre has become a great actor, starring in many roles, but he’s also become one of the best to cameo on other people’s albums. He’s truly talented.

A few others slated to be featured on the The Great Gatsby soundtrack are Lady Gaga, Prince, and Lana Del Rey.

Another film that’s coming out soon, which I’m excited to see, is 42, the story of American baseball legend Jackie Robinson.

This soundtrack also features a great song from Jay-Z featuring Santigold called “Brooklyn We Go Hard” and it’s one of those songs that has managed to fly below the radar.

And just for good measure, check out the great Outkast song, “Ms. Jackson,” for today’s Viral Video of the Day.
