Wow! This was definitely our longest episode ever. Being that Aretha Franklin passed away recently, we had to pay tribute in the best way possible and that was to bring in legendary R&B artist Peabo Bryson to the #SoulBackPodcast. They were very close friends, so we got to hear from his perspective the impact that she had on music as well as his life. We also talk about his new album "Stand For Love" which includes the hit record "Love Like Yours And Mine". We also discuss his involve in the Disney soundtracks and the importance of those songs to his career. On this episode we also talk about new music from Janet Jackson, Ashanti, Ariana Grande and much more. And of course, this was a crazy week when it came to R&B beefs so we tried our best to decipher each one.
