Queen Latifah: “Simply Beautiful”

Today, December 24, 2004, ‘Simply Beautiful’ by Queen Latifah peaked at no. 22 on the US Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart. The song features Al Green, and it’s included on Latifah’s debut singing album, “The Dana Owens Album.” 

In October 2004, the album itself reached no. 16 on the Billboard 200, becoming her first to reach the top 40 on the chart – followed by 2007’s “Trav’lin’ Light,” and 2009’s “Persona.” “The Dana Owens Albums” enjoyed a 29 week chart-run. 

Another living legend covered Al Green’s ‘Simply Beautiful’ – Leela James, for her second album, “Let’s Do It Again.”
