Aretha Franklin Prepping New Project With Help From Babyface and Andre 3000

Aretha Franklin is on the move with no signs of slowing down.

The Soul/R&B legend, who will turn 72 years old in a few days, is readying new music, and she will get some support from Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds and Andre 3000 on the pending effort.

"Babyface is working on the tracks," she told Billboard. "And I think Andre 2000 – is it two or three? 3000 is going to be doing some of the tracks with him."

Babyface will begin production work for Franklin following his two week run in Broadways “After Midnight” with Toni Braxton.

On another note, Franklin began her birthday celebration over the weekend with a small party at New York's Ritz Carlton Hotel. Along with Andre 3000 and Babyface, Clive Davis and Denzel Washington made an appearance.
