Chaka Khan’s third solo album is one of her best. The singer’s patented brand of pop-funk is elevated here by the presence of several high-caliber jazz and fusion players, hand-picked by legendary producer Arif Mardin. Michael and Randy Brecker are all over the album, as is Herbie Hancock, but the biggest surprise is Dizzy Gillespie, who guests on a brilliant modern funk reinterpretation of Night In Tunisia, entitled And the Melody Still Lingers On. The album reinforces Khan’s reputation as a pop diva with serious musical intent
As a vocalist, Chaka Khan is the one of the very few who often doesn't need great material to prosper. Thankfully, on What Cha' Gonna Do for Me that isn't the case. Teaming again with Arif Mardin, slowly but surely the two began to craft an even more successful and innovative sound. This effort not only bests the work before it, but it is Mardin's most fulfilling production since 1974's Average White Band.
Album · 1981 · 11 Songs. With her third solo album, Chicago native Chaka Khan developed a sophisticated soul sound that simultaneously showcased her endlessly amiable vocals and her daring ability to venture successfully across a multitude of genres. The title track deals in hip-shaking muscular funk; We Got Each Other, with its storming bass and sprightly synths, exploits a distinctly ‘80s pop groove; and And the Melody Still Lingers On (Night In Tunisia) is a jazz-pop celebration, armed with a Dizzy Gillespie solo for good measure.

Produced by Arif Mardin. Album What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me. What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me Lyrics. All night and day Just chippin' away It's all in a day's work Tryin' hard to defend The time that I spend alone. The TIME that you lose Exploiting the blues Won't get the job done As hard as it bites I'm keepin' my sights on you. What cha' gonna do for me What cha' gonna do for me What cha' gonna do for me When the chips are down. In the cool of the night When nothing seems right The feeling can take you Strange as it seems You make your own.
