Chaka Khan has released her new single, and it tastes “Like Sugar.”
Giving us a sickening bassline, a throbbing undertone beat and a high-energy of soul, the Queen of Funk fits right in line on the Switch-produced track. The legend fiercely sings about getting close to a dreamy guy, who she wants to put her funky groove on. “It’s like sugar/ So sweet/ Good enough to eat,” she sings.
“Like Sugar” follows her 2017 track “I Love Myself” featuring B. Slade. The fresh tune will appear on the long-awaited new album, which will be released on Switch’s new label imprint Diary Records. The album will mark Khan’s first studio album since 2007’s Grammy-winning Funk This.
