Aretha Franklin Takes On Rolling in The Deep
But does the Queen Of Soul slay the original?
It’s got to be some sort of mighty accolade for Adele to find out that Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, singer of make up and break up ballads and general godmother of music, has covered one of her songs.
Aretha, whose song ‘You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman’ was covered by Adele just a couple of years ago, takes on ‘Rolling In The Deep’ proving her pipes are still completely intact after 72 years of hollering.
Aretha gives it a feisty edge, dipping on notes Adele otherwise leaves and practically screaming the high parts. Stay right until the end of this one for a little mash up treat care of Ms Franklin and her glorious backing singers.
We hope this is the start of influential artists covering their youngers, maybe Bono covering an Ed Sheeran song, or Mariah Carey taking on Arianna Grande?
