Aretha Franklin // A Rose Is Still A Rose ft. Lauryn Hill
This is a single written and produced by Lauryn Hill and recorded and released by singer Aretha Franklin off the album of the same name. Written by Hill for Franklin, the song is feminist-based, focused on a motherly figure giving advice to a younger woman who keeps getting into bad relationships. Throughout the song, Franklin advises that in spite of everything and despite the woman’s “scorned roses and thorn crowns” that the woman is “still a rose”.
I picked this up in the dollar section today while I was crate digging.
