THE SONG: Ain’t Nobody.
WHO: Chaka Khan.
WHY IT’S HOT: Chaka Khan is by far one of the most talented and successful female vocalists the US has ever produced in any genre. A whole generation of female lead vocalists owes their vocal stylings, phrasing, and technical inspiration to the ‘Queen Of funk” nee Yvette Marie Stevens.
Listen, she’s so good that legends like the late Whitney Houston even covered her work. That’s saying something.
“Ain’t Nobody” is just one of many gems in her catalog.
WANT MORE? Classic Chaka Khan on “I Know You, I Live You”.
WORDS: Greg Cee.
