Khan received public attention for her vocals and image and is known as the “Queen of Funk”. She was the first R&B artist to have a crossover hit featuring a rapper, with “I Feel for You” in 1984. She has sold an estimated 70 million records worldwide and in 2016, Billboard magazine ranked her as the 65th most successful dance artist of all time. She was ranked at number 17 in VH1’s original list of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll and has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice.
