"I, like some other college students, had my mom tell me about Chaka Kahn. My mom was like she's so famous and back in the day she was it.I was like are you serious? I hadn't really heard about Chaka until Kanye West covered Through the Fire and she sang on MTV. I hadn't realize, how well known some of her music was until MTV highlighted it. Then I was like,oh that's the lady who sang some of those songs. I had my zune account recommend me "I feel for You" and I honestly could not get enough of this song. It's not overly upbeat like a Janet or Michael song but it's not very ballad like either. It's good mix of beats and rhythm. When i first heard it I couldn't stop listening. I was like wow,this is really amazing for pop music fans. I disagree as this being her most well-known music. Some of her stuff with Rufus and Every Woman are pretty much songs most Americans recognize. As for some other tracks, This is my night, is also very excellent, and the video is very funny. The R & B classic through the fire is amazing. It really captures your attention,and it's one of the best ballads that was ever written, in my opinion. A lot of her other albums and stuff with Rufus are very good as well. So I wouldn't exactly call this her stand out album, but this is certainly my favorite album ofhers."
