Nas may not have found his soulmate just yet, but the rap icon isn’t giving up just yet. On freshly-released album standout Cherry Wine, the Queensbridge veteran spits an exhaustive description of his ideal woman, wondering when that perfect girl will finally find her way into his life. Production vet Salaam Remi provides a velvety, piano-laced groove to accompany Nas’ romantic daydreams, and Amy Winehouse (whose “cherry” guitar inspired the record’s title) contributes her inimitable vocals to the record’s chorus. Director Jay Martin dedicates his bittersweet, elegant visuals to the late soul singer. Released July 17, as the artist’s final project with Def Jam, the Booth-acclaimed Life Is Good is available now in stores and online.
