If you know Talib Kweli’s music, you already know the sultry vocals of Aretha Franklin have always had a reserved spot in his music. Now that Black Star has reemerged back onto the scene, the soul brothers from another mother are paying the Queen of Soul a priceless tribute with their new project, Black Star Aretha.
Composed strictly of the sonic foundations Ms. Franklin paved over the years, “You Already Knew” features aggressive deliveries and soothing harmony all blended to a rich and fine texture. The Black Star keeps shining right on home.
