Nas Confirms Amy Winehouse Love Song

Posted By on October 4, 2011

     Queen's own Nas recently confirmed past speculation and rumors that claim the late Amy Winehouse's "Me & Mr Jones" was indeed a dedication to him. Nas says that he knew about the record due to producer Salaam Remi prior to it's release.

Nas confirms to XXL that Amy Winehouse's classic song is about him… Rumor has it that Winehouse once had a crush on Nas, but interpretations on the song vary. "Mr. Destiny, 9 and 14," Winehouse sings, referencing Nas's daughter, Destiny, and the September 14 birth date she shared with the rapper. "Nobody stands between me and my man/'Cause it's me and Mr. Jones." Nas recalled to XXL about hearing about the Salaam Remi-produced song prior to its release. "I don't really remember if Salaam, who was really close to her, who introduced us, if he told me about it or not," Nas told XXL. "I don't remember right now. But, I heard a lot about it before I even heard the song." (XXL Mag)
