soul jazz female vocalists Amy Winehouse british


"You Know I'm No Good" is the second single from Amy Winehouse's second studio album, Back to Black (2006). The track follows in the footsteps of Winehouse's previous singles of a mix of jazz and R&B with her soulful, raspy vocals and this time hip hop-inspired beats over it. Recorded solo, and then again with guest vocals from Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah, the original appeared on Winehouse's album, and the version featuring Ghostface Killah appears on his album, More Fish. Arctic Monkeys covered this song on Jo Whiley's Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1 in their second appearance there, along with their single at the time, "Brianstorm". In the summer of 2007, "You Know I'm No Good" was also incorporated into ads for AMC's TV drama Mad Men, as well as the opening to ITV's Secret Diary of a Call Girl. On the recap of The Best Songs of 2007 by Entertainment Weekly magazine, this song ranked at number two. Music video The music video, directed by Phil Griffin (who also directed the video for her previous hit "Rehab"), was released to music channels in late November 2006. The video features Winehouse in numerous settings including a bar, a bedroom, and a bathtub. The plot is based around Winehouse's fictional character's relationship with the male character in the video. The video premiered on VH1 during the weekend of 3 March 2007. Following its VH1 premiere, it was placed on MTV's Big 10 rotation as of 5 March 2007 and was premiered on TRL the same day. Release The single was released in the UK on 8 January 2007. The track made it onto BBC Radio 1's A-list playlist. A UK edit of the remix featuring Ghostface Killah was also sent to radio, and to download services, and the original full-length U.S. version, featuring Ghostface Killah name checking Kelly Clarkson amongst others, is also receiving airplay in the U.S., where it has been added to numerous Rhythmic radio stations. Following Winehouse's success at the 50th Grammy Awards, the song was re-released in the U.S. in mid-February 2008. Response Critical response to the single was positive. For the week of 16 January 2007, the track was chosen as the Single of the Week on the U.S. iTunes Store as a free download. Newsweek also chose the song as its Pick of the Week for 15 January of the same year. Billboard found that the track—"in original form—could be no better", however, it acknowledged that the Ghostface Killah remix added a "ferocious discordant sputter at the midsection." People magazine called the track "instantly memorable." Prior to this, Winehouse had not seen any success in the U.S., as her debut album Frank was not released there until November 2007. On the Billboard Hot 100, "You Know I'm No Good" debuted at number ninety—one spot ahead of "Rehab", which also debuted on the chart the same week. The single peaked on the UK Singles Chart at number eighteen for the week ending 14 January 2007, in an excellent week for Winehouse that saw Back to Black achieve a new UK peak of number one, previous single "Rehab" return to the UK top twenty, and Frank re-enter the UK chart at number sixty-two more than three years after its first release. To date, the single, which spent a total of eleven consecutive weeks on the UK Singles Chart, has sold 53,272 copies in the UK. Winehouse performed the song at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony while in London, along with her hit single "Rehab". The performance was broadcast internationally via satellite. The song's performance on the awards ceremony subsequently led to an increase in digital downloads, notably on iTunes, where the song reentered the Top Songs chart at number fifty-five in the United States. This resulted in a new peak for the song on the Billboard Hot 100, of number seventy-seven, one spot ahead of its previous peak. Arctic Monkeys performed a cover of the song on their 2007 tour. According to Mediabase.com, "You Know I'm No Good" is being sent back to U.S. radio for another attempt. Following the performance, the song re-entered the Hot 100 at number seventy-seven, based on digital sales. A remix by Ghostface Killah appears on the reissue of Back to Black, featuring one verse by Ghostface, and a second remix, featuring more Ghostface verses appears on his album More Fish. English actor Roger Moore said he had no idea why Winehouse chose to include him in the lyrics, unless she wanted a word that rhymed with "door", or could not find a word that rhymed with "Connery".

You Know I'm No Good - Amy Winehouse

Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt
You say what did you do with him today?
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray

Cause you're my fella, my guy
Hand me your stella and fly
By the time I'm out the door
You tear men down like roger moore

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told ya, I was trouble
You know that I'm no good

Upstairs in bed, with my ex boy
He's in a place, but I can't get joy
Thinking of you in the final throws, this is when my buzzer goes

Run out to meet you, chips and pitter
You say when we're married cause you're not bitter
There'll be none of him no more
I cried for you on the kitchen floor

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told ya, I was trouble
You know that I'm no good

Sweet reunion, Jamaica and spain
We're like how we were again
I'm in the tub you on the seat
Lick your lips as I soak my feet

Then you notice little carpet burns
My stomach drops and my guts churn
You shrug and it's the worst
To truly stuck the knife in first

I cheated myself like I knew I would
I told ya I was trouble, you know that I'm no good
I cheated myself, like I knew I would
I told ya I was trouble, yeah ya know that I'm no good
