Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is back!
The 72-year-old singer, with the help of Clive Davis, is breathing new life into a number of classic “diva” offerings from the likes of Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, and more. Unveiling news on her newest album ‘Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics,’ if you’ve ever wondered what Franklin’s thrilling gospel style would sound like over the instrumental of Alicia Keys‘ ‘No One,’ then wonder no more.
With 10 tracks of Re-re revamps aboard one album, the decision of choosing one to kick off the October 21st due set had to have been challenging. Alas, the selection came in the form of Adele’s monster hit ‘Rolling In the Deep.’
Will Franklin see her version roll the song right back to the top of charts? You tell us after you listen to this must hear tune:
