I think it’s off the hook! PLAIN & SIMPLE!

I think Chaka has done some great work in recent years–“Don’t Talk to Strangers” by Prince on the Come to My House album and the self-penned “I Believe” on Classikhan are both extraordinary, and perfectly suited to her voice; the vibe is right–and let’s face it, as I think both of you will agree, she’s not easy to write for or produce.

Anyway, thanks so much for this blog!

the entire Chaka/Prince collaborative ‘come to my house’ album is a highpoint for both artists, another slept on masterpiece

corinne bailey ray does exceptional covers… try her versions of bjork’s ‘venus as a boy’ or Led Zep’s ‘since i been lovin you’

Anyone who say’s Chaka is off the mark needs to have their head examined, with a quickness. Chaka is one of the baddest sista’s of our time. I’m glad to see she’s back on her game. As a Bass player and a musician I must say there is no female out there that brings it like Chaka, not even Patty Labelle. As for the person who said “Chaka only has two speeds” I say she only needs two speeds and that’s “stop and go” Keep on livin’ your Super Life Chaka. Sincerely, D.C. Brown

Chaka Khan is doing very little different on Funk This that she hasn’t beeen doing. On record her vocals have always been phenomenal with that sassy phrasing that she owns. Her live performances are the stuff that deserves Kalamu’s unfocused critique of idle or hot as hell. But her hot as hell live performancres are the stuff that makes her “beautiful mistakes” as she calls them sufferable. Even the live performance with Kanye West of “Through the Fire/Wire” to me were saved by her ability to wring the funk out of a vouice that was not there. Inserting the power wails during crucial moments made you forget that her voice was skipping between notes. …But Funk This is bad ass funk. Go ask ya mama to explain if you can’t understand!
