If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Adele just received the ultimate compliment. Today, Aretha Franklin gave fans a taste of her upcoming album, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics. Apparently, Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” is one of those classics, and the original Queen Of Soul covered the British singer’s 2010 smash single.
Franklin takes listeners through her full octave range and even veers into the Motown classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” before leaving fans blown away with her cover. If the rest of her album is like this, we’re clearing our schedules to give the whole LP a listen. The album is set for an October 21 release, and we can only pray that Franklin and Adele take the stage together sometime in the near future.
