Amy Winehouse's new album may include contribution from Jay-Z as the rapper would 'love to work with her again.'
Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z is willing to help English R&B/soul singer Amy Winehouse working on her new album. Opening it up to The Sun, Jay-Z says he is impressed with Amy's "powerful voice", which he describes as "distinctive and beautiful."
"Amy has a really powerful voice, it is so distinctive and beautiful," Beyonce Knowles' husband explains. "Hopefully in the future we could get together and work on some new material - I'd love to work with her again."
Jay-Z once contributed his vocals in the remix version of Amy Winehouse's single "Rehab" back in 2007. He has also lent a helping hand to such singers as Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Bun B, Young Jeezy and many more.
As for Amy Winehouse, she has been busy recording new songs for the follow up of 2006 album "Back to Black". A source said that she has "ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae" and made bosses in Island/Universal Records unhappy. But, the rumor was quickly denied and described as an "absolutely not true" report.
