Soul diva Patti LaBelle revisits a host of favorites on her new album, "Classic Moments." Due this week via Def Soul Classics, the 13-track set is led by a duet with Mary J. Blige on Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way" and a cover of Elton John's "Your Song," a No. 8 Billboard pop hit upon its original release in 1970.
"Classic Moments" was produced by Babyface and Darryl Simmons. It also includes LaBelle's renditions of Michael McDonald's "I Keep Forgetting," L.T.D.'s "Love Ballad" and a hidden track with Kristine W, "Land of the Living."
The album is the follow-up to LaBelle's 2004 Def Soul Classics debut, "Timeless Journey," which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
