The Queen of Soul is releasing a new album called Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics, paying tribute to her vocal peers including Etta James and Barbra Streisand. Of the 10 divas crowned by Aretha, Adele is the youngest, the only Brit, and she provides the lead single. Not bad at all. 

Listen to Aretha's take on Adele's mega-hit Rolling In The Deep and then check out some of our favourite coveres of all time below. Taylor Swift doing Eminem, anyone?

For good measure, here are the other very random cover combos we love. Trust us when we say Taylor Swift doing Eminem isn't one to be missed...

Justin Timberlake covers Poison by Bell Biv DeVoe (with the help of two brilliant backing singers) - and reminds us that he has moves.

Jay Z might have seemed like an odd choice as Glastonbury headliner. But I was there, and his cover of Oasis' Wonderwall was epic.
