H.E.R. pays respect to Aretha Franklin with her soulful tribute “Let’s Get Away.”
The breezy jam features a sample of the Queen of Soul’s classic “Day Dreaming” off her 1972 album Young, Gifted and Black. “Hey, baby let’s get away / Let’s get away far,” she sings on the effortless cut.
“We’ll miss you, Aretha Franklin,” tweeted H.E.R.
We’ll miss you, Aretha Franklin. ❤️🕊

H.E.R. recently released her six-track EP I Used to Know Her: The Prelude, which features a collaboration with Bryson Tiller (“Could’ve Been”) and the Lauryn Hill-inspired “Lost Souls.”
Franklin, who died earlier this month at the age of 76 after a battle with pancreatic cancer, will be laid to rest in her hometown of Detroit this week. Friday’s funeral is set to include performances from Stevie Wonder, Ariana Grande, Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, and The Clark Sisters.
