MORNING CUP OF SOUL - CHAKA KHAN - STAY

This is Chaka Khan in 2002 singing the Rufus classic "Stay". To every young artist don't even try to remake it. The best remake of this song is still miles away from this classic. Erykah Badu attempted to put her own spin on it and it was for the best because nobody can sing it like Miss Chaka Khan!

  1. Fresh Man...you get big-time props for this post, man. Talk about musical brilliance at it's best! No disrespect at all to Erykah for going for what she knew on her "try" (plus she's a major CK admirer as well), but Chaka has put her formidable stamp of excellence on this live version...and ain't much changed from the studio release date in 1978. So here she is at the time (2002), 24 years from the studio recording date...serving it up so well live. Well deserved credit to her band and back-up vocalists as well, on this concert clip.

    Peace,

    Luv-Me-Sum-CK
