Aretha Franklin covers “Rolling In The Deep” on her new album Aretha Franklin Takes on the Great Diva Classics.

Is her version even better than Adele’s original?


Franklin’s new album, which is due out on October 21, also includes the music legend’s own take on such classic songs as Barbra Streisands “People,” Gladys Knights “Midnight Train to Georgia,” and Whitney Houstons “I’m Every Woman.”

Franklin is set to perform “Rolling in the Deep” on Monday’s “Late Show with David Letterman.”

Earlier this month, two unreleased Adele songs leaked online.

Hear both versions of “Rolling in the Deep” below!
