Everyone please sit down, put your phone on mute and take a deep breath.

Aretha Franklin is done with music and plans to retire this year! Think about what you’re trying to do to me!

The Queen of Soul – who plans to tour one last time after the release of her final album in September – made the mic drop revelation to a local Detroit TV station.

“I must tell you, I am retiring this year,” she told WDIV Local 4. “I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”

The 74-year-old feels comfortable winding down her legendary career and gave fans a glimmer of hope that she’s not completely done for good. 🙏🏽

“I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from and where it is now. I’ll be pretty much satisfied, but I’m not going to go anywhere and just sit down and do nothing. That wouldn’t be good either.”

The 18-time Grammy winner hinted she’ll still do “some select things” for six months out of the year. We’ll take it!

Whenever Aretha decides to take the stage, belt out a tune or just show up on a red carpet rockin’ a luxurious fur and weave, there’s no question she’ll get nothing but mad R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
