Some of R&B’s biggest stars are aligning to pay tribute to Nina Simone. Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, inspired by the Netflix documentary What Happened, Miss Simone?, will be released on July 10.
It features contributions from Ms. Lauryn Hill, Usher, Jazmine Sullivan, Common, and more. In addition to her stirring cover of “Feeling Good,” Ms. Hill debuts “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair,” her second of six covers, which she produced and performed for the compilation.
Usher channels the late legend on his bluesy rendition of “My Baby Just Cares For Me,” and Jazmine Sullivan brings down the house with her reggae-inspired cover of “Baltimore.”
