''Funk This'' is the thirteenth studio album by American R&B singer-songwriter Chaka Khan. The album was released September 25, 2007 on Burgundy Records and received two Grammy Awards.

The AA-side singles "Disrespectful" (featuring Mary J. Blige) and "Angel" were released to radio and made digitally available on iTunes in advance of the album release. On October 13, 2007 the album entered at its peak position of number fifteen on the ''Billboard'' 200 and number five on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. On December 6, 2007, the album was nominated for Best R&B Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards, while "Disrespectful" was nominated for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Both nominations resulted in wins for Khan.

Following the success of the initial AA-side single, the duet with Michael McDonald, "You Belong to Me", was released to radio, eventually peaking at number eighteen on the Hot Contemporary Jazz Songs chart. The contemporary R&B ballad "One for All Time" as of February 9, 2008 had reached number fifty-five on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

In February 2008, "Funk This" has sold 160,000 copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. - Wikipedia
