"Naughty" is the sophomore solo album by American R&B/funk singer Chaka Khan, released on Warner Bros. Records in 1980.

Biography

Three singles were released from "Naughty": the club hit "Clouds" (penned by Ashford & Simpson who also wrote Chaka's "I'm Every Woman") (US R&B #10), "Get Ready, Get Set" (#48) and the big hit "Papillon (a.k.a. Hot Butterfly)" (#22). "Papillon" featured prominent background vocals from Luther Vandross, Cissy Houston, and her daughter Whitney. On Billboard's charts, the album reached #6 on Black Albums, #43 on Pop Albums.

Following the release of "Naughty" Khan reunited with Rufus for the recording of 1981's "Camouflage". Her third solo album "What Cha' Gonna Do For Me" followed later that same year. "Naughty" finally saw a United States CD re-release in 1998 as part of the Warner Bros. Black Music Ol' Skool series.
