Chaka Khan sat down with Steve Harvey this week to talk about a myriad of things, including her relationship with Prince, but it’s what she said about singers today that has all of us nodding in agreement. The 65-year-old was asked what she thought was missing from artists out today and we couldn’t help but agree with her statement.

“Talent. Sincerity. The reason. The initiative. Why am I here on this stage….really speaking and loving all these people in mass.” Watch below.

And she’d know a thing or two about talent with over 70 million records sold and 10 Grammys to her name. And if you’re waiting on new music, last month she announced the news of her 12th album, Hello Happiness.

Although Chaka was snubbed for a nomination into the 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame late last year, and suffered a less-than-best performance because of the flu, she seems to be stronger than ever.  Hello Happiness is set to be released on February 15.
