    Beyonce is going to do a "Great" job covering an Amy Winehouse hit.

    E! News exclusively revealed Monday that the "Single Ladies" hitmaker has teamed up with Andre 3000 for a duet of the late singer's "Back to Black" for the soundtrack of the upcoming remake of "The Great Gatsby."

    Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack, which will be released by Interscope Records. "It's a very different take on 'Back to Black,'" a record company said.
