Aretha Franklin- Respect

It's Thursday which means, THROWBACK TIME!

This week, our song is "Respect" by Aretha Franklin.

Aretha Franklin was a popular R&B artist and is also known as "The Queen of Soul". In addition to being a musician, she was an actress, songwriter, and civil rights activist. 

The song "Respect" was one of her top hits which is actually a cover of a song by the same title originally performed by Otis Redding. In Aretha's version, it is from the point of view of a woman who knows her value and wants her partner to respect her. "Respect" later became an anthem for the feminism movement. 

Listen here to Respect!
