Chaka Khan unveiled her new song “Like Sugar,” the Queen of Funk’s first track in over a decade and the first single off her upcoming new album. Khan teams with Major Lazer producer Switch on the track, which rides a funky bassline, a classic dance beat and an infectious chorus where Khan declares, “It’s like sugar/ So sweet/ Good enough to eat.” Khan’s upcoming album will be the funk legend’s first since 2007’s Funk This. According to Universal Music, “Like Sugar” is the first official release on Switch’s nascent Diary Records imprint.

The first studio result of Bowie’s mid-1970s obsession with soul music, "Young Americans" was a breakthrough for the artist in the United States (where the single was released in an edited 3:11 version). The sound, later described by Bowie as "plastic soul", was matched by a cynical lyric, making references to McCarthyism, black repression via Rosa Parks, Richard Nixon (who resigned the U.S. Presidency two days before the recording session), and a near-direct lift from the Beatles’ "A Day in the Life" with the line "I heard the news today oh boy!" (John Lennon, who wrote that line, appeared twice on the Young Americans album, providing guitar and backing vocals on his own "Across the Universe" and "Fame", for which he also received a cowriting credit.) The backing vocal arrangement was suggested by Luther Vandross.
