Chaka Khan – I Know You, I Live You

Chaka Khan is amazing, she’s recorded so many great tunes yet somehow this is a fairly recent revelation to me. Everyone knows the hits so I hope I don’t need to educate anyone there and of course you all get down to I Feel For You when it goes the jukebox but have any of you actually listened to the album it’s from in full? No? Then do so immediately, there are some killers on there!

Anyway, this is one from 1981 and has a chorus that I can never get out of my head. What a riddim.

Chaka Khan – Through The Fire

Everyone should know this for the huge sample lifted by Kanye West for his breakthrough track, Through The Wire. Sadly, that might have overshadowed the fact that this is a totally top tune!

Always had plenty of time for Chaka Khan and this is what old skool R&B slow jams are all about for me. Grab your favourite girl or guy and get on the floor…

Also worth noting that her hair is HUGE in the vid. I love it
