Chaka Khan released her first song in eight years on Monday, "I Love Myself." The song, which is an ode to self-love, positive self-esteem and acceptance, premiered on EW. Listen to her feel good anthem below. 

Chaka is also asking fans to submit a one-minute clip of themselves lip-syncing the song's chorus by Feb. 26 for a chance to be featured in the song's video. 

“It is important that in these troubled times we honor our own self-respect,” Chaka told Billboard. “Beauty knows no boundaries and is accepting of us all whether black, white, gay, straight, physically or mentally challenged.” 

But she's paying it forward with more than an inspirational message. A portion of the proceeds from the single's earnings will go towards helping victims of domestic violence and discrimination through the organizations Face Forward and Stomp Out Bullying. 

What an "Angel!"
