It’s Fun, twenty four hours following passing of the most effective singer of the lifetime, Aretha Franklin.
And exactly what a tribute to her the fans made: Aretha featuring 21 of the top 100 singles around the iTunes charts.
The number 1 single remains to be “Respect,” and Aretha has numbers 2 3 also. This lady has fended off new releases from Janet Jackson and Ariana Grande.
On the albums chart, Aretha’s Greatest Hits is # 2. She gets 17 albums inside the top players completely.
Over on amazon.com’s CDs and Digital downloads chart, Aretha has got the top three albums. There are about 15 others scattered with the top players.
Aretha’s posthumous success is suitable for Carole King, who wrote “(You’re making Me Feel as if a) Natural Woman” with Gerry Goffin and Jerry Wexler in 1968. King’s “Tapestry” album is usually selling, with her version recorded a couple of years later.
I know Aretha is watching this complete phenomenon and smiling from heaven. But boy oh boy, we miss her. Still, she and Otis Redding must be enjoying themselves watching “Respect” soar through the world right now!
