Today, the Queen of Funk Chaka Khan has released ‘Hello Happiness’, her first album in twelve years, via Diary Records / Island Records. ‘Hello Happiness’ is an album which sets Chaka Khan’s timeless vocal to an empowering collection of songs with cutting-edge production. With an eye on the future and a respect for the past, Chaka Khan has delivered an album with the contemporary edge to entice newcomers to her world-class talent and the quality to excite long-term fans.

Chaka Khan first collaborated with Switch and Ruba Taylor as a potential featured artist on a different project. Inspired by the power of both her voice and personality, the duo suggested working on an original Chaka Khan album – something which she didn’t have in mind. But she was soon convinced when she heard some of Switch and Ruba Taylor’s songs, which coincidentally were influenced by Chaka Khan but written for their own project. After forty years in music, ‘Hello Happiness’ is a celebration that proves that Chaka Khan is as inspiring as ever.

After scoring his first GRAMMY win for Best Traditional R&B Performance this past Sunday, PJ Morton connects with singer Jojo as they gift their fans with this new song titled Say So.

Speaking on the collab, Grammy winner Morton said:

“I’ve always been a fan of JoJo, even back in the TRL days. Her talent was always out of this world. I knew that I wanted to make ‘Say So’ a duet and wanted to make sure it was with a voice I truly believed in. I saw that she was free and clear from her previous label complications, and I jumped at a chance to work with her! I reached out and she was down. She flew down to New Orleans and it all flowed so perfectly.”

Today, three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated singer and songwriter Asiahn releases her anticipated new album Love Train 2. The record includes buzzing singles “Like You,” “Lost In London,” and“NOLA.” Over the course of twelve tracks, it paints a picture of lust, loss, and love playing out in emotionally charged seductive soundscapes. “Something New” hinges on evocative and vivid lines like, “Put on a red dress, lipstick called fever, closed down emotions, Sade on speakers, you gonna regret it, tonight I’m gonna have to touch you.”Meanwhile, the breathy “Truth Vol. 2” dips from bedroom transmissions into sparse fingersnap-punctuated production as delicate guitar and French cooing echo through the sexy “Drip.”

Of Love Train 2, Asiahn states, “There are two things I want you to see, first, I’d love for people to walk away from this feeling optimistic about love again. That’s how I end part II. I go from believing there’s no love anywhere to meeting someone. It comes from knowing yourself and loving yourself first.”
