Blessed be! Another 2017 collabo we didn’t know we need, Chaka Kahn is reportedly poised to release several songs she recorded with the late legend, Prince. Chaka, a friend and collaborator of Prince’s, spoke to the DailyStar about an album the two had recorded before his death last year. “I own half an album that we did together, recorded at my house, so we will be doing that, probably next year.”
This announcement, along with Chaka’s iteration that she has some legal ownership over the material comes as huge gift/win/whatever-you-want-to-call it for Prince fans who feared no more music would be released posthumously due to legal issues.
