Aretha Franklin

In Aretha Franklin’s eyes, Adele has achieved the high throne that is diva status.

Franklin covered Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” as part of her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, which will be released on Oct. 21. According to Billboard, Franklin also does renditions of Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman,” Barbra Streisand’s “People,” and Gladys Knight’s “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

Below, take a listen to Franklin’s version of “Rolling in the Deep,” which mashes the song together with a little bit of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
