Jewels in the Crown

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: Aretha Franklin; Status: In Season

Franklin could sing the assembly instructions for an IKEA desk and it’d sound good. In fact, that might be a superior listen to the older duets included on Jewels in the Crown, often cursed with ’80s-era production (the ripping ”Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves” with Eurythmics excepted). Move along, instead, to new offerings: ”Put You Up on Game” finds Fantasia not disgracing herself, while John Legend gets a nifty case of the James Browns on ”What Y’All Came to Do.”
