    She most likely knows more than 5 of Aretha songs but she didnt know for a 100% fact Aretha song them.

    Why do people act like this matter? Of course she doesn't know and that doesn't matter. What the hell does her knowing Aretha franklin songs got to do with her talent?

    People are bugging. It's one thing if u genuinely are interested in the history of your genre. But to say it's mandatory to "know your history" is delusional.

    Hell is Aretha even someone she should be looking up? Wouldn't her "history" be Mary J,Brandy,Moncia,Mya,Alicia Keys etc?

    Only thing these topics do is show your age.

    She's not a normal 24 year old woman tho, she is standing on the foundations women such as Aretha Franklin built, she should know her history

    She's 24, Im 31 and there's TONS of music I didn't discover till I got older. I'm taking about 90's hip-hop like group home, ATCQ, Gangstarr stuff that I always knew about but just couldn't appreciate in my formative years when I was more into Dipset, Kanye, Jay, Nas. Etc.

    Likewise she probably grew up on Ashanti, Mary J, Alicia and stuff like that

    So relax guys, she has plenty of time to grow and appreciate the older music that came before her time. Not everyone has the same passion, time or energy to do discover music at the same pace...sometimes you just got to let things unfold and discover music when the time comes for you. I always found that one of the most beautiful aspects of being a music head

    I'm still discovering new artists and catalogues, and it's dope

    Not many people are...

    And Mike was a pop artist who was driven by wanting to write songs for Mass appeal...

    Regardless aretha is a legend...

    I wouldn't expect youngins to know 3 of her songs

    But not know her cover of RESPECT ? :gucci:

    that means she didn't come up in black culture

    People in their 20s grew up to their parents playing 90's music (mainly hip-hop). Aretha is great but she never gets play outside of Respect.

    Even old school stations start at the 80s and neglect stuff before then. Where are you really going to hear Aretha's music? Same way you're not going to hear Run DMC or 2Pac generally unless it's on a commercial or movie.

    This why black people ain't got soul anymore
    Usher was performing Ray Charles songs at the white house, Obama half cac ass was looking at this nikka in disgust with his lack of soul, nikka was looking like mad weak like a cac up there

    john legend performing bll withers use me, was even more pitiful, disrespecting that man to his face when he got put into rock n roll all of fame with that garbage





    Black music is in a horrible state, blacks use to be a best a music, and now are the worst at it, because you don't support are real artist and make excuses for these frauds and non talents because its "about the bag"

    naw fukk that, 90 percent of these mutahfucakz need they mic snatched, they trash
