Chaka recently did the theme song for the Quincy Jones documentary....a cool,retro jam called "Keep Reaching".I'm surprised that she's not including it on her album.It's a great track.

. That was for Quincy’s thing, it’s on the soundtrack where it should be. I thought it was a snoozer IMHO,

I like it.....it's got a cool,early-80s R&B feel.....reminds me of the What 'Cha Gonna Do For Me album.

Well, the album is available for pre-order on amazon so maybe it actually will happen this time. Although I'm curious to know why USA Today stated a few days ago that the album would be released at the end of 2019? confuse

So we waited almost 12 years for an EP of 7 songs? Really??? sad

Yeah a little disappointing. Ironically I was at work thinking about Chaka this morning

and One For All Time crossed my mind. Funk This was a great listen but Hello Happiness while not bad has to grow on me.

Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

I really hope this album comes out...and will inspire more unreleased Chaka albums. The woman can still SAANG...when I last heard her live around 2012...

Well, I can pretty much guarantee all of the dozens of songs she has in the can that have been recorded over the past several years will remain there.

Not happy to say this but I have a feeling this could very well be her last album before she retires from releasing new music. Maybe a single or guest appearance here and there but Im not expecting any more full length albums out of her, whether its new or vault material.And she has alot of excellent unreleased material out there just collecting dust.i have had the pleasure of hearing some of it over the years and i am dumb founded as to why Warner Brothers continues to hold on to the tracks. FTG claims to be making a comeback this year. Im hoping they work with WB in reissuing some of her albums and we get some of the tracks that way.

although it will never happen,I would love to see the Rufus and Chaka Khan catalog upgraded....maybe a cool,multi-disc box set that features some rarities,outtakes,etc.

I love the original version of Hello Happiness! Its groovy, got a nice 80s vibe to it. The remixes aren't that good this time around, unfortunately. Maybe I need to give them the "big speaker" treatment but they aren't as catchy as Switch's remix of Like Sugar. I found a site that streams them on Google fyi.

Can't wait for the album!

I really like Hello Happiness, but wasn’t that fussed on Like Sugar. I hope there’s some more traditional songs on the album and at least one ballad.

Chaka's looking good for 65! Looking forward to the album as well.

Thanks for the heads up!

I was thinking the same. I need some ballads on this album. But, with only 7 tracks and, although I don't know anything about the producers, it sounds like they specialize in dance music? So, I'm thinking probably no ballads. mad

yeah,I don't think there are no ballads here.Chaka recently said "the kids wanna dance,so I'm giving them a dance album" or something to that effect.
