Listen to Aretha’s cover of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’

By Josh Haggis

Aretha Franklin has unveiled a ridiculously fierce cover of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep.

The Queen of Soul tackles Adele’s 2010 hit as a mash-up with the Motown classic Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – listen to it below.

Franklin has worked with R&B producer Babyface on the album, as well as legendary music boss Clive Davis. Her last album, Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love, was released in 2011.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Franklin made waves online when a GIF in which she appeared to snub fellow diva Patti Labelle went viral – watch it here.
