Alright, keeping in mind that this is a track that’s quite obviously meant to play during a film, I can get behind it. Would I ever choose to listen to this cover otherwise knowing that Beyonce’s version exists? No. Still, that’s not saying it’s a bad cover, it’s just been made for The Great Gatsby and it sounds like it was made for The Great Gatsby. I think this will be well-enjoyed by fans of, well, The Great Gatsby.
What do you think? Do you like this “Crazy In Love” cover by Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra? Is it better than Beyonce’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” for The Great Gatsby which also received polarized reviews?
