Product Description

Originally Release '98 , Produced by Prince.

Amazon.com

Come 2 My House arrives on the heels of Chaka Khan's heralded live collaboration with the Artist, and while it bears unmistakable marks of the deposed Prince's involvement, it's also more rough and ready than his own New Powersoul, which preceded it by a few months. Chaka sounds inviting--literally so on the title track, which finds her proffering "some really good beer or a glass of wine" in a manner even a teetotaler couldn't resist--but also like nobody's fool. "I'll never open my legs again," she asserts, "unless I'm really sure." With "Tell Me Something Good" and "I'm Every Woman," solid favorites of young fans of the old school, Chaka is back to let us know that the jam is still moving. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

Chaka has always been a mentor and great inspiration to my own musical career.

The album's vocals are good and the music is ok but it doesn't come together as an album you will want to listen to.

If you want to listen to someone who can sing, without being too over the top, then you'd enjoy Chaka.

Let's face it; being produced by Prince can go either way. Sometimes his eccentricities pay off tenfold; sometimes he's so damn quirky you'd almost think he didn't want anyone to buy his music. Therefore, hearing that Chaka Khan collaborated with Prince for an entire album will either fill you with breathless anticipation (will Chaka elicit new shades of purple?) or pending doom (will she trust him too blindly in the interest of trying something new?). Luckily for all involved, "Come 2 My House" is a triumph all around: His Royal Badness shakes the production tendencies that made Sheila E. and Jill Jones sound like they were merely singing over Prince demos, and Chaka winds up with the most consistent and carefully-measured album of her career.
The listener gets a jolt right off the bat; rhythmically exhaling over bass-heavy beats, Chaka ushers in lush piano chords and a classy horn section to make the title track just as much straight jazz as it is pop, and it works as a most effective opener. When Chaka sweetly croons "come to my house/where we can play," it's enough to send you scrambling through the credits in hopes of finding an address. Another seamless blend of styles is offered on the exhilirating "Reconsider (U Betta)," where Chaka matches a jazzy horn line with her own formidable scats, all laid over a chunky street beat. "House" also provides shelter to some of Chaka's most mature ballads to date: "This Crazy Life of Mine" is a lovely, string-laden piece of autobiography; lines like "never will forget from whence I came/I have some regrets but I made myself a name" rings profoundly from a woman who clearly knows how to weigh the pros and cons of life.

The first I heard from Ms. Chaka Khan was back when I was a little tyke, and I had that infectious intro "Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan...Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan" planted into my brain. Of course, that song turned out to be "I Feel For You", which was recorded in a somewhat ok version by its writer, Prince (back when he was still known as that). But Chaka's version totally blew his out of the water, showing that she had mastered yet another genre that was seemingly out of her league. Funk, jazz, soul, and now the distinctly Prince-like funk that helped define 1980s pop. However, it would be another 15 years or so before the Purple One and Chaka officially collaborated together (Prince had written a few more songs for Chaka's other projects, but COME 2 MY HOUSE is the first major collaboration for the two). That dream has finally come true with COME 2 MY HOUSE.
Many people have considered this album a comeback for Chaka, when in fact she never really left us. She was still a well-respected artist even when she wasn't conquering the charts. So COME 2 MY HOUSE is more like a reaffirmation of Chaka's considerable talents. And who better to help her out than that other fellow genius, Prince.
Naturally, his stamp is all over the album, helping write 9 of the 13 songs on here, even 2 of them solo. Those solo contributions fit into Chaka's personality very well, though. "Journey 2 The Center Of Your Heart" and "Don't Talk 2 Strangers" are still very Prince-ly while perfect for Chaka's voice, and are the standards by which all break-up songs and lullabies, respectively, should be judged.

Chaka Khan is The Original DIVA and "Come 2 My House' is a Masterpiece. It has all the elements of a great CK album. Chaka and The Artist have outdone themselves. Admittedly, when I first heard this CD I wasn't thrilled with the idea, but after repeated listens I finally recognized it's true brilliance. It has her trademark Funk, R&B, Jazz, Pop, Hip-Hop, & Gospel, all done with a sensuality and intimacy that only Ms. Chaka Khan can bring to the table. From the opening title track, you know that you are about to experience a full journey. This CD brings all of Chaka, in her various incarnations, full circle. There are no sleepers on this one and it is most disappointing when the CD comes to an end. For those who didn't understand it the first time, I challenge you to visit her house once more with an open heart and an open mind and you will see why Chaka Khan remains to be The Original DIVA.

I've been trying to find this album for a couple of years, and now i finally own it. What I really enjoy about it is that Chaka's amazing voice gets a lot of room here. Instead of losing her voice in the beats and scratches like most R&B artists do lately, the background music takes a backseat to Chaka's powerful voice. There's a good combination of fun dance tunes and powerful ballads in here. If you want to listen to someone who can sing, without being too over the top, then you'd enjoy Chaka. There's no room for that whitney houston-esque warbling-around-at-the-end-of-a-sentence thing here.
