Chaka Khan Releases New Song ‘Woman Like Me’

Chaka Khan has released her “hardcore real” new single, ‘Woman Like Me’.

Chaka Khan says she was drawn to the fiery track because it speaks to “both sexes”.

She said of the power ballad: “When I heard it, I was like, ‘Wow. I could’ve wrote this. I should have written this.”

“It’s talking to girls right now. Men and women, right now.

“And when you can find a song that can talk to both sexes equally, you know … and this song does. It’s like a woman talking to a man.”

She added: “This song is more meat-and-potatoes and to the point. You know, it’s hardcore. It’s more ‘hardcore real’ reality. And that’s what attracted me to the song.”

Chaka’s last studio album was 2019’s ‘Hello Happiness’.

Last summer, she featured on Todrick Hall’s album ‘Femuline’ on the track ‘Fabulosity’.

Chaka Khan also opened up about touring and how she had to design her own “comfortable” stage outfits to keep performing.

In an interview with ‘Good Day Atlanta’, she said: “I had to go back there because I was not happy with what I felt was expected of an entertainer today.

“I just want to be comfortable right now. I’m trying to stay on stage, and not fall off the stage!”

Meanwhile, the ‘I Feel For You’ hitmaker previously ruled out working with Ariana Grande again.

The music legend – who is not afraid to tell it how it is – collaborated with Grande in 2019 on the track ‘Nobody’ for the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot soundtrack but Chaka won’t be the repeating the experience in the future.

She said in 2020: “Fuck that. She’s all right, she’s good on her own. Plus, I don’t want to sing with another woman. I ain’t got nothing to say with a woman.

“And we ain’t gonna talk about no man, we ain’t gonna talk about none of that stuff. It’s not happening. I’m not gonna do no song with no heifer.”
