Chaka Khan returned last month with Hello Happiness, her first album in over 10 (!) years. To celebrate the release, the 65-year-old music legend appeared on Ellen Wednesday morning to perform the LP’s lead single “Like Sugar”.
Living up to her Queen of Funk title, Khan prepped the stage to look like a ’70s nightclub, complete with flashy overhead disco ball. Despite her long absence from the spotlight, Khan worked the crowd like a pro as dancers broke out jerky moves around her.
Replay the full performance over at the official Ellen website.
