One of Chaka Khan’s most famous musical moments happened in 1978 when she recorded the Ashford & Simpson song “I’m Every Woman” for her first solo album after leaving Rufus. The tribute to a woman’s confidence became one of her signature songs. Whitney Houston would cover it in the ’90s and introduce it to another generation of fans. It was announced back in May that Khan had signed a new recording contract with the SRG/ILS Group to begin the next chapter of her music career. The single “Woman Like Me” is also about honoring women’s value to society and Khan sings about it just as urgently as she did in 1978. This preview of her next project comes three years after her 2019 Hello Happiness album.
Chaka Khan is often called the Queen of Funk Soul for her five decades of hits that started with the Stevie Wonder-penned “Tell Me Something Good” when she was with Rufus. The 10-time Grammy winner is a music legend and industry icon. Last year Khan participated in Verzuz with Stephanie Mills. Khan is currently touring the United States.
