Destiny is the seventh studio album by American R&B/funk singer Chaka Khan, released on Warner Bros. Records in 1986. Destiny was Khan's follow-up to the platinum-selling I Feel for You and was as high tech as its predecessor - symptomatically and characteristically for its period with more producers and sound engineers credited in the liner notes than musicians - but was musically more geared towards rock and pop than soul and R&B, most prominently on tracks such as "So Close", the self-penned title track "My Destiny", "Who's It Gonna Be" and "Watching The World" featuring Phil Collins on drums and backing vocals.
