    Some criticism has been levied at Amy Winehouse's camp over the posthumous release that drops Dec. 5.

    Producer Salaam Remi vigorously defended Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures as something that documents her life. It's not a profit-seeking endeavor, since a portion of the proceeds are being donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

    Remi told NME.com that "A lot of people, through the other antics that were going on with her personally, didn't get that she was at the top of what she did. Coming to Miami was her escape from all of that, and her writing process could document her life, whether it was recording the pain or the loneliness or the humor. It makes no sense for these songs to be sitting on a hard drive, withering away."
