Multiple Grammy winner and "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin was known for such hits as "Respect," "Freeway of Love" and "I Say a Little Prayer."

Remix Struggle by Tinush, from 'A Deeper Love' by Aretha Franklin ♛

Tinush begins the track with a soulful piano solo, then begins layering drum loops, breaking at times for other instrumental solos. After a two minute build, Aretha comes in over a Tinush piano solo. Her vocals are clear, strong, untouched except for the reverb added to the last word she sings, “inside.” In case you’ve forgotten how the lyrics go…

“People let me tell you I work hard every day
I get up out of bed, I put on my clothes
‘Cause I’ve got bills to pay
Now it ain’t easy but I don’t need no help
I’ve got a strong will to survive
I’ve got a deeper love, deeper love.”

On August 12, 2018, it was reported that a "gravely ill" Franklin was
bedridden in her Detroit home, surrounded by family and friends.
As news of her condition spread, more luminaries paid a visit to express their well wishes, including Stevie Wonder and Jesse Jackson.

Four days later, on the morning of August 16th, Franklin succumbed to her illness, which her family revealed to be pancreatic cancer.

I hope you enjoyed it.
