Nas confirms that Amy Winehouse’s “Me & Mr. Jones” is actually about him

Pin it

After much speculation, it turns out the Mr. Jones referenced in Amy Winehouse's 2006 song "Me & Mr. Jones" is in fact Mr. Nasir Jones, the rapper better known as Nas. Nas has officially confirmed this, noting the late singer's intense feelings for him. This is either completely unsurprising news or a total revelation depending on your lyrical decoding abilities. Take these choice lyrics:

What kind of fuckery are you?
Side from Sammy you're my best black Jew
But I could swear that we were through (we were through)
I still want to wonder 'bout the things you do

Mr. Destiny 9 and 14
Nobody stands in between me and my man
'Cause it's Me and Mr Jones (Me and Mr Jones)

Astute listeners probably already figured out that the reference to Destiny is an reference to Nas' daughter. As for the numbers, September 14 is the shared birthday for both Amy and Nas. In fact, they were planning on throwing a joint party this year. Just another sad revelation to emerge in the shadow of the talented singer's demise.
