Singing hot-mess Amy Winehouse has turned to Beyonce’s boyfriend, hip-hop titan Jay-Z, to help get her new album back on track.

Jay-Z -- who remixed her hit single Rehab -- answered her S.O.S after demos for her mega-selling Back To Black were not well received by her music bosses, according to the UK Sun.

"Amy has a really powerful voice, it is so distinctive and beautiful. Hopefully, in the future we could get together and work on some new material – I’d love to work with her again," Jay-Z said.

The "Bee-Hived chanteuse" also recently persuaded Mark Ronson, the producer behind Back To Black, to come-on-board and help salvage her third album too.

Ronson (Samantha Ronson’s brother) had originally turned his back on the singer after her drug and alcohol problems meant he had to shelve working on a James Bond theme song with her last year.

It remains to be seen if the hellraiser singer can stay clean as she tries to finish her latest record.
