Music Video: Nas Featuring Amy Winehouse - Cherry Wine

Musically speaking, rappers sometimes exist in a world of perpetual wish fulfillment.  That world tends to be void of genuine emotion and/or substance.  Bearing that in mind, Life is Good was a breath of fresh air.  It’s mired in somber tones and reflective moods, yet it’s an emotionally varied experience.  It’s most lighthearted moment is undoubtedly “Cherry Wine,” Nas’ collaboration with the late Amy Winehouse.  The song has a lovely mood, and I’ve always been curious as to how a music video director might interpret its ambience.  Well, I don’t have to wonder any more.  The video has arrived.
