I've been listening to this album a lot recently, and I was wondering how everyone else feels about it.
I'm probably Aretha's biggest fan, and therefore I love this album, but i really LOVE this album. Clive Davis is a genius for the way he brought in hip hop producers to update her sound. I mean c'mon, who ever thought we'd see Aretha working with Lauryn Hill, Puffy and JD? she jus sounds so good over these beats

if you don't have this album, get it.
my favorite tracks are A Rose Is Still A Rose (🤬 , written, and feat. Lauryn Hill), Never Leave You Again (🤬 by Diddy), Here We Go Again (🤬 by JD) [also, fun fact, this incorporates the same sample as Janet's All For You], I'll Dip (🤬 by Dallas Austin), and The Woman (written/🤬 by Aretha)

here's a few links to songs (my bad, i suck at embedding youtube videos lol)
