After celebrating 64 years of life in March, iconic chanteuse Chaka Khan has decided to continue her contributions to the culture with a new exciting endeavor.
As reported by The Grio, Khan is reportedly launching an independent record label this week under the name iKhan Sounds. In addition to signing fresh talent, the indie label is said to support her upcoming musical efforts.
Although the singer herself has yet make an official statement about the label, sources claim the new direction is a strategic move to give Khan control over her music and its profits, according to Grio. For the decades that Khan’s brought us groovy, feel good tunes, she’s been signed to a number of major record labels like Warner Bros, ABC, and Reprise.
To celebrate her new venture, Khan is also reportedly to be releasing a song called “I Love Myself” on June 16. As of now, this is a great look for Khan, but we’ll have to wait and see what truly comes of iKhan Sounds.
