The Flashback Fridays #1 Amy Winehouse ft Jay-Z - Rehab (Remix) (2007)
As always with what I try to do with The Flashback Fridays, celebrate songs from half a decade to decades ago period, meaning from 2017, a look back primarily on songs from 2007 or 1997 unless for a special reason.
So with that said again, it is another flashback to 2007, with the massive song from the late Amy Winehouse that propelled her to stardom here in the United States.
Though the original "Rehab" came out in October 2006, it didn't reach American shores until March 2007. The remix with Jay-Z added more terrific popularity to the growing Winehouse wave in the early stages of the 2007 summer. It established the Southgate, London native to a bona fide name in the music game.
With star pop beat making Mark Ronson's production, no question this was the full arrival of Amy Winehouse.
So, your first Flashback Friday choice this week, it's Amy Winehouse and Jay-Z with "Rehab (Remix)."
