The icon that introduced the world to the female empowerment song of our lives, "I Am Every Woman", now delivers the ultimate female anthem, "WOMAN LIKE ME" globally available now, via the SRG-ILS Group/UMG label imprint.


"WOMAN LIKE ME" was written by Gregg Pagani, Francesca Richard, and Jeffrey Anderson and produced by Gregg Pagani.

 
 

As previously shared exclusively with Billboard.com, "WOMAN LIKE ME", is Chaka Khan's first single release since signing with The SRG/ILS Group, back in early May, 2022.


“Chaka Khan is a beacon of light in our industry. Her spirit and her vocals soar. It is a pleasure working with her on this next chapter and we got a hot record here.” – Claude Villani, Founder and CEO of The SRG/ILS Group.


“I am very proud to be with The SRG/ILS Group, a company that is run by a real musician who understands the needs of artists that have been overlooked for years.” Chaka Khan


Her legendary career jump-started when Stevie Wonder penned the now classic “Tell Me Something Good” for Chaka when she was lead singer of the R&B, Funk band Rufus in 1974. Both the song and the album, Rags To Rufus, topped the charts, were certified Gold and won the Grammy that year for Best R&B Vocal Performance.

 
 

After six albums with Rufus nearly all of which went Gold or Platinum, in 1978 Chaka Khan started her solo career releasing the all-time classic “I’m Every Woman” (Ashford and Simpson). Produced by iconic songwriter, arranger, producer, and executive Arif Mardin, the single and the album, Chaka, cemented Chaka Kahn as a force that was about to take over popular music.


After incredible success both solo and collaborative, in 1984 Chaka released the iconic album I Feel For You. The title track, a cover of a Prince song, was a gigantic pop hit on the radio and MTV and earned Chaka her second Grammy Award as a solo artist for Best R&B Vocal Performance.
