R&B

The Queen of Soul holds court as an eclectic array of stars–from Frank Sinatra and Keith Richards to Elton John and Whitney Houston–sit in with her on these collaborations, most of them previously released. And while there is some padding, there are some real gems, like "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" with Eurythmics. But it's two new duets that really make this set worth it: "Put You Up on Game," on which Franklin schools Fantasia, and, even better, "What Y'All Came to Do," a funky throwdown with John Legend.
