Aretha Franklin to cover “Bootylicious”
Aretha Franklin wants to take a crack at one of Destiny’s Child’s biggest hits! The Queen of Soul is thinking about including one of their hottest singles in her next studio project, which will be an album of covers from other artist.
“It’s just re-working some things that were very, very good and certainly chart-worthy and sold a lot of records,” Aretha explained to Billboard. “They’re records that, musically, I respected and that I liked a lot and that I would love to have one go-’round with.”
She added, ”I’m even thinking of ‘Bootylicious.’”
And anything that the Queen puts her pipes to is sure to come out sounding like gold.
“I aspire for musical excellence. I have very high standards where music is concerned,” Aretha said. I’m looking for something I haven’t done, something that you haven’t heard and something just absolutely smashing.”
