‘Cherry Wine’ Video: Nas Makes a Drink for Someone Who Is Not Amy Winehouse

The best Amy Winehouse video not featuring Amy Winehouse is still "Valerie," in which the adorable Mark Ronson coaches a team of Amy look-alikes through an impromptu performance of the song (backed by Winehouse's actual vocals). But that approach is not exactly respectful in a posthumous situation, so credit Nas for skipping the holograms and limiting Amy Winehouse's "Cherry Wine" appearance to some performance footage projected on a speakeasy wall. As for his bartending skills ... well, that looks more like a cherry martini, if we are getting technical. Not that Nas should be serving anyone Boone's Farm, but just saying.
