According to the singer, the group’s record company at the time was behind the name change, but the male band members took it hard and treated her like she was behind it. She added that the name change was the beginning of the end for the band.
“I didn’t have anything to do with it. It was the record label: ABC-Dunhill … and it messed us up,” Chaka told Luenell. “That was the beginning of the end for us. It broke my heart. And they … the guys … took it seriously. They acted like I did it. Like I orchestrated it. And that hurt me a great deal.”
Moving along, Luenell asked Chaka about meeting and recording with the late Rick James.
“He (Rick James) came to the studio where i was working at,” was Chak’s simple answer.
Well, Lunell is the for the jokes so she hit Chaka with a snarky question, “Did y’all almost have a baby again?” to which Chaka responded “Hell Naw!” I wouldn’t touch that with your stuff, ” she cracked while laughing. 🙂
Good one, Chaka. Good one.
