Let’s be frank here. The Queen of Soul looks damn good.

Over the weekend Aretha Franklin was spotted with gospel legend Ricky Dillard backstage and we’re loving her new svelte figure!

The 75-year-old was riddled with a series of health complications that caused her to cancel a myriad of shows earlier this year, but all seems to well. And she looks as if she shed a few pounds as well! Take another look at the Queen with Dillard as she clutches a handful of money.

Just last month Franklin performed at the Detroit Music Weekend where she was honored with a key to the city by  her hometown and its Mayor Mike Duggan.
