Nas pours out some “Cherry Wine” and remembers his friend Amy Winehouse in his latest music video. The hip-hop legend works as a bartender in a lounge as footage of the late soulstress flashes against a brick wall. The Jay Martin-directed clip marks the fifth video from Nas’ Life Is Good album, which debuted at No. 1 in July.
“Amy was just one of a kind. We just clicked like that. May she rest in peace,” Nas told Rap-Up TV. “She’s watching us, she’s holding me down and I’m holding her down here. It’s just love forever.”
Nas will ring in 2013 with a concert at Radio City Music Hall in his hometown of New York City on New Year’s Eve, with opening act Elle Varner. Tickets are on sale now.
