Rapper Kanye West, who is basking on the success of his latest album, has planned to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse by revamping one of the songs from her album Back to Black. The Watch the Throne rapper has re-recorded the title track from the album. And he has planned to perform it when he is in London for Moss Bros 160th anniversary celebrations.

Earlier, Kanye West has honoured Amy Winehouse using music. He performed at the UK's Big Chill festival earlier this month, and took the opportunity to play some of her songs like 'Tears Dry On Their Own' and 'Back to Black'. Now, he has planned to pay tribute. A source said, "It's pretty emotive. It's Kanye singing from the heart - with synthesizers."

However, it should be here that Amy Winehouse, who died last month in a suspicious way, had fought with Kanye West to win Grammy's Album of the year 2008. They vied for the coveted prize against Foo Fighters and Vince Gill, but it was Herbie Hancock, who brought home the award.
