Check Out More Covers From the New Nina Simone Tribute Album

By Sameer Rao Jun 23, 2015

As the anticipation builds for the June 26 Netflix premiere of the new documentary "What Happened, Ms. Simone?" RCA officially has released select tracks from the accompanying album "Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone." 

We already shared Ms. Lauryn Hill’s version of "Feeling Good," which may be Simone’s most famous song. Now, check out Hill’s atmospheric cover of "Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair;" as well as Usher’s hip-hop-infused version of "My Baby Just Cares for Me" and Jazmine Sullivan’s reggae-driven take on the despair-laden "Baltimore." 

"Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone" will be released on RCA on July 10 featuring additional performances by Common and Lalah Hathaway, Gregory Porter, and Simone’s daughter Lisa Simone.
