Chaka Khan is back with her first new album in twelve years ‘Hello Happiness’.

The Queen of Funk made a phenomenal return to music in 2018 with hit single ‘Like Sugar’. Originally launched as a limited edition release for Record Store Day, the track was a smash and earned major airplay from the likes of Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Pete Tong, Benji B, Danny Howard and Gilles Peterson before finally receiving a full summer release.

The song went on to spark the global #LikeSugarChallenge and numerous bootleg remixes, whilst the accompanying Kim Gehrig-directed video took home two wins at the UK Music Video Awards.

Chaka has now unveiled another new single in the form of album title track ‘Hello Happiness’. The accompanying visuals were directed by award-winning Sam Pilling and filmed in Los Angeles.
