Who's Zoomin' Who? is the thirtieth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin. It was released by Arista Records on July 9, 1985 in the United States
The title track, "Who's Zoomin' Who," has a sputtering bassline and chiming keyboards augmented by Franklin's soulful delivery, and her improvised ad libs are laudable, to say the least. The single peaked at number two for four consecutive weeks. She had another Top Ten hit with "Another Night," a midtempo number with a light rock feel.
Released in 1985, Who's Zoomin' Who? was Franklin's first platinum-selling album; it features her last chart-topping hit, "Freeway of Love. With production from Narada Michael Walden (known for his work with a young Whitney Houston), a collaboration with Eurythmics ("Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves"), and all-star guests like Santana, Clarence Clemons, Sylvester, Peter Wolf, and even Dizzy Gillespie (who provides a trumpet solo on "Integrity"), this is a landmark album and a late-career highlight in Franklin's extensive discography . A legendary singer who's been steadily working for more than four decades, Aretha Franklin is among the most important artists in pop-music history.
Though Who’s Zoomin’ Who? never quite comes together as an album, Walden’s ambitious eclecticism works cut by cut with few exceptions, and astonishingly, the hype is nearly justified: this is some of Aretha Franklin’s best work since the Sixties. Obviously, the example of Tina Turner acted as goad and inspiration, and the edge of rich brashness in Aretha’s performances seems sparked by Turner’s electric drive. Surely, Franklin deserves the sort of broad recognition (.
