Aretha Franklin covers Mariah Carey's 'Touch My Body'

This just in from the Department of Diva Affairs: A highly entertaining YouTube clip of Aretha Franklin covering Mariah Carey’s "Touch My Body."

Still, for my money, when it comes to the Queen of Soul tackling suggestive material, you can’t touch her simmering 1967 classic "Dr. Feelgood." Did Aretha really get away with those lyrics more than 40 years ago? Scandale!

What do you think of Aretha’s "Touch My Body" cover? And what other modern hits would you like to hear her tackle next? Might I suggest 702’s "Where My Girls At"? Oh yes I might!

    Between this, R Kelly’s version, and some others, “Touch My Body” has become a sort of pop culture staple.

    Even Mama ReRe can’t resist this awesomely terrible song!

  • Kimiko

    What the hell she looks like a Giant COUCH or STAY PUFT MARSHMALLOW MAN LOL
    People who are 400 POUNDS and Years old should not be trying to sing this song while wearing all white ;)

  • I Got Soul

    Too funny!!

    Awesome! I think Aretha should do a whole album of songs like this. May I suggest covers of MJB’s “Just Fine”, J-Hud’s “Spotlight”, Beyonce’s “If I were a Boy”, and a cover of Diana Ross’s “Love Hangover” just for fun?

  • queen of disrepair

    My God, she’s just the most awesome female singer EVER!!! I’d like her to take on some Maroon 5 and go to town on Amy Winehouse’s sorry behind…

    AWESOME…I LOVE THAT SHE STILL PAYS ATTENTION to new music and has fun!!!! I would love for her to work with Mariah or get some modern (but great) producers.
