ICYMI: Chaka Khan Returns with “Like Sugar” and New Album Announcement

Our sassy mother of Disco Funk, Chaka Khan, is expected to release her first solo studio album in eleven years before the end of 2018. With that promise, comes the sweetest summer kickoff jam from the legend herself, and – not that we ever doubted it but – she’s still got it. “Like Sugar” is a funky and groovy number that is sure to get your body moving. It’s accompanying visual features a few gorgeous dancers who pleasingly invoke the still-relevant, mid to late ’70s energy and aesthetics.

Without abandoning the soul and heat of her signature sound, what Khan offers on the forthcoming album’s lead single is just another example of how adaptable she, a multi-genre slayer, truly is. Right in line with the era of “bops,” “Like Sugar” is a retrofuturist’s dream. And a fun fact for those of us who worship Chaka Khan’s brilliance, she played drums on the track. Watch the visual above or listen below via Spotify and Apple Music.
