Happy Birthday, Amy Winehouse.
Today, September 14, would’ve marked Amy Winehouse’s 34th birthday. The Pop Diva sadly passed away in 2011 to an overdose. Amy’s artistry and essence have inspired countless artists since her untimely passing. To celebrate the singer, R&B up-and-comer Gallant teamed up with UK artist Dua Lipa to give us a beautiful cover over Amy’s “Tears Dry On Their Own.” AND. IT. IS. PERFECT.
The track is originally off Amy’s 2006 Back To Black. Back to Black gave us five singles, ” Rehab”, “You Know I’m No Good”, “Back to Black”, “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Love Is a Losing Game.”
Gallant In The Room
The cover comes to us as part of Gallant’s In The Room series, a collection of in-studio sessions with Gallant an other artists. The series has brought us match up with Gallant, John Legend, Seal, and a few others. “I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with him, he’s a true artist through and through,” said Dua Lipa in a quote to The FADER.
