Hit of the week: Chaka Khan ‘Like Sugar’

After 10 years of silence on the dance floor, the spirit of funk has finally been revived because Chaka Khan has re-emerged with a new single called “Like Sugar.” The timeless track is a collaboration with Major Lazer member Switch. The Kim Gehrig-directed visual is essentially the dance party of your dreams as a colorful cast of dancers perform choreographed routines while decked out in the freshest fits. Chaka Khan has also signed to the producer’s new label, Diary Records. The Queen of Funk hasn’t released new material since her 2007 album Funk This.
