The reigning Queen of R&B (yes, I know that this is debatable) is gearing up for the release of her latest project, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, which is precisely what you think: a body of work that sees the singer covering some of the greatest R&B hits of our modern time.
Of those covers (you can see the tracklising for the project below), one of striking: a rendition of Adele’s mega-hit ‘Rolling In The Deep’. You can enjoy that stream below; …Great Diva Classics is released 21st October.
SIDE NOTE: This is also the project that features Franklin’s collaboration with Andre 3000.
