Beyonce and Outkast's Andre 3000 are partnering on a duet of Amy Winehouse's jazzy masterpiece "Black to Black" for the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, E! News reports.

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z is producing the playlist for the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire and will mark its world premiere May 15 at the Cannes Film Festival. It opens earlier in theaters on May 10.

Beyonce and Andre 3000, who previously collaborated on her 2011 song "Party," offer a "very different take on 'Back to Black,'" a source tells E! The soundtrack, which might also include songs from Prince and Lady Gaga, will be issued by Interscope Records.

Last May, Luhrmann selected Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne track, "No Church in the Wild," as the music for the film's first trailer, leading to buzz that the rap mogul was being tapped for the role of musical curator.
