jay-z goes jazzy

Emeli Sandé Does a Jazzy Cover of ‘Crazy in Love’ on The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

As more and more track snippets are (purposefully!) leaked, it’s becoming more and more apparent that the soundtrack to this summer’s The Great Gatsby might be better than the film itself. The latest reveal is 12 of the 21 total tracks, leaving off Jay-Z’s “100$ Bill” and Beyoncé and André 3000’s version of “Back to Black.” Many of these songs have been hinted at throughout the film’s various trailers, while Fergie’s “A Little Party Never Hurt Nobody” is already out in full.

Most promising? Lana Del Rey’s very Lana Del Rey–ish “Young and Beautiful,” the xx’s haunting “Together,” and an intriguing cover of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” by Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra. A cover of Beyoncé on an album where Beyoncé also does a cover of Amy Winehouse? Oh no you didn’t, Jay.

1) “Bang Bang,” will.i.am (0:01
2) “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got),” Fergie, Q Tip, and GoonRock (0:31)
