Aretha Franklin’s Through the Storm is her 32nd studio album overall. On April 25th, 1989, Arista Records released it to the public.
After debuting at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, the album’s title track (a collaboration with Elton John) was released as the album’s first single.
Although the album’s lead track was a smash hit, the album itself was a commercial failure, peaking at number 55 on the Billboard 200 after 18 weeks.
The subsequent single, a duet with Whitney Houston titled “It Isn’t, It Wasn’t, It Ain’t Never Gonna Be,” peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and failed to crack the top 40.
The third song from the album, a duet with James Brown titled “Gimme Your Love,” was not well received and peaked at #48 on the R&B Songs list.
