Song of the day: Chaka Khan- I Feel For You

chaka khan i feel for you

In 1984, Chaka Khan recorded a cover of an older Prince song. Prince wrote the song in 1979, actually for Patrice Rushen, but it never appeared on an album of Patrice Rushen, so Prince recorded it himself on the album Prince. Chaka Khan invited Melle Mel to rap, David Frank (The System) to play keyboard and guitar and even Stevie Wonder to play the harmonica. The beginning of the song was actually a mistake from the producer, but it sounded good, so they kept it. It made a hit, number 1 in the UK and number 3 in the US. Enjoy
