Risqué is the third studio album by American R&B band Chic, released on Atlantic Records in 1979, the same year that Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers wrote and produced Sister Sledge's massively successful We Are Family. Risqué includes three classic Chic hits; "Good Times", "My Forbidden Lover" and "My Feet Keep Dancing". Risqué reached #5 on the US albums chart and #2 on R&B and was followed by the release of the band's first greatest hits compilation Les Plus Grands Succès De Chic: Chic's Greatest Hits in late 1979. "Good Times" has been extensively sampled in other artists' works. "Will You Cry" was sampled in "Just a Moment" by Nas from the album Street's Disciple Risqué was transferred to compact disc and re-released by Atlantic Records/Warner Music in 1991. The album was digitally remastered and re-issued by Warner Music Japan in 2011.
