Chaka is American R&B and funk vocalist Chaka Khan’s debut studio album. The record, originally released in 1978, features Chaka’s iconic single “I’m Every Woman”, as well as “Ain’t Nobody” and “I Was Made to Love Him”.Shortly after she departed the funk outfit Rufus in 1978, Chaka Khan recorded her solo debut, which demonstrated that the talent and energy she’d brought to Rufus could shine just as brightly without the rest of the band. On the strength of her popular, disco-fied take on Ashford and Simpson’s ‘I’m Every Woman,’ „Chaka“ began to garner attention, a phenomenon hastened by the album’s second single, ‘Life Is a Dance.’
„Chaka“ is solid album throughout, though, thanks to an assembly of excellent backing musicians, top-notch production, and, naturally, Khan’s amazingly capable pipes, which can veer from a fierce, fiery wail to a soulful croon with ease. Whether on ballads (‘Roll Me Through the Rushes’), bottom-heavy boogie (‘Some Love’), or her cover of Stevie Wonder’s ‘I Was Made to Love Her’ (Khan flips the gender), „Chaka“ blends funk and radio-ready R&B beautifully, and is a must for any fan of Rufus or Khan.

Still very much an integral part of Rufus, Chaka Khan set the charts on fire with her debut solo release. The first single was the R&B chart-topper “I’m Every Woman,” an Ashford & Simpson track with Khan lighting up the lyric with her tantalizing vocals. “Life Is a Dance,” the second release, doesn’t quite compare to its predecessor, but it still made the R&B Top 40. The sentimental ballad “Roll Me Through the Rushes” is poetically engaging, and despite never being released as a single, it became a mainstay of radio. Although Khan had much credibility from her association with Rufus, this album demonstrated that the dynamic vocalist could hold her own ground alone. –Craig Lytle
