About "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)"

I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You is the tenth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, released on March 10, 1967 by Atlantic Records. It was Franklin's first release under her contract with the label, following her departure from Columbia Records after nine unsuccessful jazz standard albums, and marked a commercial breakthrough for her, becoming her first top 10 album in the United States, reaching number 2 on the Billboard 200. Two singles were released to promote the album: "Respect" (an Otis Redding cover) and "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)". The former topped the Billboard Hot 100, while latter reached the top 10.

Although initially released to a mixed critical response, the album was eventually widely reappraised and is now regarded as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time, being included in Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list, in which it was ranked at number 13 in the 2020 iteration, as well as in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Franklin's cover of "Respect" became her signature song and was ranked by Rolling Stone as the greatest song of all time in 2021.
