Aretha Franklin Looks Completely Different After Dramatic Weight Loss

Aretha Franklin

The Queen of Soul revealed her much smaller frame at a performance over the weekend.

The legendary singer has been losing weight over the past few months and has now revealed a dramatically slimmer figure.

In a picture posted to Upscale Magazine's Instagram, the 75-year-old looks incredible.

The 'Respect' hitmaker announced earlier this year that she is planning on retiring soon, but first there are two new albums in the works.

A collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra called 'A Brand New Me: Aretha Franklin With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' will be released on November 10th, and will feature the diva's big hits like 'Think', 'Natural Woman' and 'I Say A Little Prayer'.

A second album, which will be released in January, will see Franklin collaborate with fellow music stars Elton John, Lionel Richie and Stevie Wonder.
