Disrespectful (featuring Mary J Blige) (Single)
by Chaka Khan
Released: Jul 2007
Label: SBME Strategic Marketing Group
It's unclear whether she meant this song to be a mashup, but that's what it sounds like. Chaka goes all Tina (as in Turner) on this finger-snapping, neck-popping single, shouting, sweating and swaggering through a song that could have come straight out of classic R'n'B vaults. Meanwhile, Mary J. Blige leads a buttery chorus that evokes soft-focus videos, white linen and artsy shots of thoughtful women. It's a schizophrenic thing, but Chaka crackles and pops on this four-minute slice of pleasurable insanity; if any singer deserves a comeback, it's her.
