I should have clarified that Rufus was included/implied

Sweet Thing is definitely at the top for me too. Stay is a really good one. Erykah covered it on her live album back in the day.

Also, just cause it fits this vibe and someone might not have heard it, Aretha’s cover of What A Fool Believes is so sick.

I wish her and Prince had gotten together in the studio - but this is as close as it gets i guess. They did some things together live, but always leaves a little to be desired for me.

I'm really happy that there's a Chaka thread though.

And sorry for bringing any negativity, but I really did not enjoy that Aretha cover. Maybe I'm just too bonded to the Doobies, but I felt she kind of undid all the bits that make the song so strong. But love and respect where it's due, Aretha is an absolute Queen!

A proper Prince x Chaka album would have been amazing if it was the right time... Unfortunately it never happened in this universe

Saw her perform "Ain't Nobody" at a Snoop show. Was unexpected and dope. Respect!

surprising it took this long for an "ain't nobody" reference to come along. that would have the best surprise - that song has some incredible sounds in it!
