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.
