Andre 3000 Producing Four Aretha Franklin Songs
Andre 3000 is set to produce four songs for Aretha Franklin's forthcoming divas cover album.
Andre 3000 is slated to produce four songs on Aretha Franklin’s forthcoming divas cover album, according to Billboard.
"I'm pretty sure it's going to be fun working with [Andre 3000], just watching his videos and things," Franklin says during an interview with Billboard. "It should be fun. And, of course, they all come with great music, so I expect that.”
Due in September, the collection is executive produced by Clive Davis and features production from Babyface and Daryl Simmons.
In March, Franklin discussed working with the OutKast rapper.
"I think Andre 2000—is it two or three? 3000 is going to be doing some of the tracks with" Babyface, she said at the time.
Covers of Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Midnight Train to Georgia," Barbra Streisand's "People," Donna Summer's "Last Dance," Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do With It" and Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" are among the songs slated to appear on the album.
