Chaka Khan

As part of their #MusicMonday series, New Yorkers Da YoungFellaz have released their track “Chaka Khan”, produced by Andre Keys. First of all, I think Chaka Khan is a goddess, so it comes as no surprise that I have high expectations for this track. There’s something about the beats, rhymes and instrumentals (and of course, using samples of Chaka Khan’s “Angel”) that make this track not just musically appealing, but visually as well.

Da YoungFellaz add a new dimension to “Angel” by complementing it with rhymes also about hard times. They take us into a life of danger, distrustful friends, living in The Big Apple, and a lifetime of experiencing and witnessing financial and emotional struggles. Even though the track tackles tough issues, it still remains positive and upbeat. I commend Da YoungFellaz’s use of “Angel” for their track and I think they do a great job at turning it into something of their own.

Da YoungFellaz’s new project The New York Times will be dropping soon.
