Through the Fire
Sello: Rhino/Warner Records
Suffused with the Electro influences and synthesizers that were dogging R&B in the '80s, Chaka's fifth solo album rescued the artist from obscurity as a '70s Funk star. Fortunately, it's still Chaka, and her fabulously energetic delivery give heat to the cool and sometimes stiff electronic stylings. Features the hit cover of Prince's "I Feel For You."
