    I’m gonna assume she had a blank moment since she was put on the spot. Otherwise...:usure::francis::patrice:

    I can name more than three Aretha songs. On the flipside, I get stumped naming three Ella Mai songs. All I know is "Boo'd Up" and "Trip".

    This ain't surprising. She don't know Aretha's music. I highly doubt any of those younger singers do. And it's obvious

    Looks like it was a blank moment though. At least I hope it was. I mean, "Respect", "You Make Me Feel", "Say A Little Prayer", "Chain of Fools", "A Rose Is Still A Rose".

    This is like 90% of the reason music today is garbage. These youngins don't even know the recent history of what they do. :francis:

    I would hope so...for her sake. Because otherwise, that's just embarrassing. But I don't put anything past generation Z. So who really knows? A lot of them are ignorant, so it really shouldn't be surprising. Smh

    Ella mae is 24, your not going to find too many 24 year old women who can name 5 Aretha Franklin songs.

    Sure but she's supposed to be a singer. Artists are usually well versed in who came before them.

    I'm 25 and I'll admit that I didnt come up on Aretha but I can at least name five songs..

    her being a singer dosent have anything to do with her not knowing songs she isn’t familiar with.
