Soul legend Aretha Franklin celebrated her 70th birthday on March 24. At her birthday party in New York, she told the Associated Press that she’ll reunite with Clive Davis to begin work on a new album. Franklin said they’ll sit down to discuss the direction of the album after Davis celebrates his 80th birthday on April 4.
Clive Davis guided Franklin’s comeback in the 1980s. She was signed to his former label, Arista Records, which released the Number One R&B album Jump To It in 1982 and Franklin’s first million-selling collection, Who’s Zoomin’ Who, in 1985.
