Chaka Khan – Fate

pochette disque chaka khan

Le 15 avril 1981, Chaka Khan sort le titre Fate tiré de l’album What Cha’ Gonna Do for Me.

Ce titre ne remporte pas le succès attendu, eu égard à la célébrité de la chanteuse à l’époque. What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me est un pur album studio dans lequel Rufus ne trempe pas. Ceci explique peut-être cela.

Toujours est-il que ce titre présente un petit potentiel puisqu’il sera partiellement réexploité en 1998 par Stardust, le groupe d’un des Daft Punk, pour Music Sounds Better With You qui y trouve son get down.

Paroles :

When you walked into my lonely life tonight
I saw my destiny, I saw eternity tonight
And the moment I held you I knew it
What we do is decided before we do itFate, this could only be
Fate, I never thought I’d believe in
Fate, now I understand
It’s part of the plan
I was meant to be your womanTime stood still, and we lost on words to say
And though the people stared, they seemed a million miles away
Oh we knew it was love we were feeling
We were destined to give it a whole new meaningFate, this could only be
Fate, I never thought I’d believe in
Fate, now I understand
It’s part of the plan
I was meant to be your womanIn my heart I feel I’ve loved you all my life
I was in the dark, but now I think I’ve seen the light
I rang like a bell with your laughter
Something tells me I’ll love you forever and everFate (this could only be)
It was fate (this could only be)
It’s part of the plan
I was meant to be your woman
(It’s part of the plan)
I’ll love you forever and ever
