Aretha Franklin’s Cover Of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” Gets A Wideboys Remix: Listen To The Dance Overhaul

Aretha Franklin‘s mash-up of Adele‘s “Rolling In The Deep” and Motown classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” went viral after the legendary soul singer performed it on the Late Show With David Letterman. Commentators didn’t have a lot of nice things to say about her performance or ensemble but I think it’s an unfathomably entertaining trainwreck that demands multiple viewings.

I feel the same way about the seemingly unnecessary remix package. There’s something so wrong about a soaring house remix of an Adele ballad performed by Aretha Franklin that just makes it more fun. Wideboys do the best job of turning the lead single from Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics into a furious floorfiller. Check out the English duo’s camp handiwork after the jump.
