Tinush, “Struggle” featuring Aretha Franklin

Tinush puts his own interpretation on Aretha Franklin’s “A Deeper Love,” and renames it “Struggle.” While Aretha’s version fits perfectly with the gospel/house genre that was popular in the 90’s, Tinush‘s remix brings a musical experience that feels more serious, more closely aligned with the lyrics.

Tinush begins the track with a soulful piano solo, then begins layering drum loops, breaking at times for other instrumental solos. After a two minute build, Aretha comes in over a Tinush piano solo. Her vocals are clear, strong, untouched except for the reverb added to the last word she sings, “inside.” In case you’ve forgotten how the lyrics go…

“People let me tell you I work hard every day
I get up out of bed, I put on my clothes
‘Cause I’ve got bills to pay
Now it ain’t easy but I don’t need no help
I’ve got a strong will to survive
I’ve got a deeper love, deeper love.”
