Mark Ronson has defended Beyoncé's version of Amy Winehouse's hit Back To Black, insisting he feels "flattered and honoured" by the cover.

The 37-year-old producer was full of praise for 'Queen Bey's' version of the song and even played it on his East Village Radio show on Friday.

Speaking about her rendition of the track, which features on the soundtrack track for Leonardo DiCaprio's new movie The Great Gatsby, Ronson said: "I'm flattered and honoured. I know Amy would be too."

Winehouse's father, Mitch, recently stated that he is unimpressed by Beyoncé's cover of Back to Black, saying: "I don't think she brings anything to it... They have got to pay for the privilege (to cover the song), which is what they are doing. I can't tell you how much it is but it's a lot of money."

The Great Gatsby hits cinemas on May 16.
