Aretha Franklin is seeing Patti LaBelle‘s Sweet Potato Pie and raising her a jar of Chili and a package of baked chicken.

“Ms. Patti’s gonna have to move that pie to the side!” Franklin told Detroit’s Channel 4 this week when she announced she coming in the beginning stages of releasing her own line of grocery items.

You may remember that LaBelle made national headlines over the holiday season after Walmart couldn’t keep her Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie, priced at just $3.49, on its shelves. The pies literally sold one per second for 72 hours straight before completely selling out, leading to a public outcry for “More pies! More pies!” and requiring WalMart to rush order an additional two million pounds — yes, two million pounds — of sweet potatoes to meet the demand.

Now, Franklin hopes to do the same. She just announced she’ll be releasing her own brand of Aretha Franklin chili, gumbo and baked chicken, plus a few desserts.

No word yet where or when exactly the products will be released, but we can already feel our cholesterol rising.
