The Jamaican-born songbird teamed with Orion Meshorer and Roland Gajate Garcia (Kanye Wes, Rosalia, and Stevie Wonder) to perform the cover of the classical hit song.
The 23-year-old singer delivered a moment of grace with her cover of “Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse, on which the British singer expresses “feelings of hurt and bitterness for a boyfriend who has left her; however, throughout the lyrics, she remains strong.”
“He left no time to regret, Kept his d-ck wet with his same old safe bet / Me and my head high, And my tears dry, go on without my guy / We only said goodbye with words, I died a hundred times / You go back to her and I go back to / We only said goodbye with words, I died a hundred times / You go back to her and I go back to black, black, black / I go back to us black,” Jada sings in the opening lines mixed with the chorus.
