While your favorite artist are struggling to get a decent single to chart on Billboard, The Queen of Soul is remaking old classics and placing her jugs on display for all you naysayers…

Another album jem dropped today featuring Aretha Franklin‘s version of Gloria Gaynor‘s ‘I Will Survive‘ and a Destiny’s Child mix of ‘Survivor’ which surprisingly sounds fantastic…. Definitely a better showing than her ‘Rolling In The Deep’ fiasco.

Aretha is 100 years old and singing your favorite new and updated artist under the bus with ease. I love it. In the meantime peep the upbeat, disco flavored tune after the jump and don’t forget to purchase Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics later this month.

My Prayers Have Been Answered: Adele Set To Perform At The 54th Annual Grammy’s

Thank you Sweet Baby Jesus for answering my late night prayers and seeing that Adele graces the stage at the Grammy Awards this year.

After an abrupt health scare and emergency surgery things weren’t looking so great for the best selling artist of 2011 as her singing voice was in serious jeopardy. Well after going under the knife in November (recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage), the UK singer WILL be in attendance where she will also be performing. The Recording Academy confirmed this on today (Jan 31th)

Adele tweeted the exciting news today as well :“Ima be, Ima be singing at the Grammys. It’s been so long I started to forget I was a singer! I can’t wait, speak soon xx”

Who but Adele??? The reigning Queen of Billboard will surely end the year on a good note and for great reason..


The (RIAA) Recording Industry Association of America has awarded the singer a quadruple- platnum plaque for her sophomore album.

You earn platinum status when you sell one million units or over. Well, she has sold over 4 million units, I thought she was banking from her first album but it looks like the second album has her pockets “rolling in the deep).

Stores haven’t been able to keep her album on the shelves since it was released in February. It only took her one month to go platinum.

Her hit single “Someone Like You” reached double -platinum status by itself, racking in over 2 million U.S. downloads. (source)
