CK is the eighth solo studio album by Chaka Khan, and her first to include input by Prince (although her 1984 album I Feel For You contained a cover version of Prince's I Feel For You).

The album contained Sticky Wicked (featuring both Prince and Miles Davis) and a version of Eternity (previously released by Sheena Easton), although this track has no new input from Prince and is considered a cover version.

This album contains the only released track to feature both Prince and Miles Davis, although they did not record their parts of the track together.


Promotion

The album produced three singles, It's My Party, Soul Talkin' and Baby Me. The album reached only number 125 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 17 on the Billboard R&B Chart.
