Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and Rufus & Chaka Khan. It doesn't really matter what name is used because the result is the same: solid grooves, arresting melodies, and the overwhelming vocals of Chaka Khan. This album spawned a Top Five Billboard R&B hit with "Stay," a song with a moderate tempo and a very humble beginning that bows to an explosive plea from Khan. It reached number three on the charts after 18 weeks. "Blue Love" has that seesaw rhythm that swings from midtempo to uptempo but is controlled by Khan's delivery. It slipped into the Top 40 at number 34 in a short nine weeks. This project could have easily supported additional releases with songs like the engaging "Stranger to Love," the jazzy "Destiny," and "Best of Your Heart."
A thematic masterpiece from Neon Nox. A superb album that stays true to the Neon Nox sound and has plenty of motivational and inspirational synth to get you out on the roads and driving. A must for those who love Outrun and motivational themes.
