She became the lead singer of the funk band Rufus; and in 1973, they released their self-titled debut album, which earned her the name “Queen of Funk”. In 1978, Chaka released her solo debut album, which featured the crossover disco hit “I’m Every Woman”, written for her by songwriting duo Ashford & Simpson. The success of the single helped the album go platinum, selling over a million copies.
