Chaka Khan is kicking off the second half of the year the right way.

According to The Grio, the legendary singer has reportedly launched her own independent record label, called iKhan Sounds. Sources say that Chaka not only made the move because she wanted a little more control over her music, but also because she wanted her fair share of the proceeds from her music and performances.

The first artist on the new label is Chaka herself and she’s set to release a new song called “I Love Myself” on June 16. This is great news for the ten-time Grammy winner who checked herself into rehab last year for help with a prescription pain medication addiction.

The courageous move took place just months after the death of her close friend, Prince, who also struggled with prescription drug abuse. It’s great to see that Ms. Khan is back and better than ever.
