Song Of The Week(end): Chaka Khan, “Like Sugar”

Chaka Khan

The temperature’s rising and the people need something to help them get down. Thankfully, a hero has emerged to save the day; funk legend Chaka Khan with her first new music since 2007!

“Like Sugar” is a funky number with touches of house music. The 65 year old Queen Of Funk is in great voice and clearly having a blast being at the center of the party again. The track is a collaboration with former Ma

jor Lazer producer Switch who is producing Khan’s next record. The as yet untitled record should be out sometime later year on Switch’s label Diary Records. Until then, slip this into the mix of your next cook out and watch people start grooving.
