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" (#1 Pop, #1 R&B June 23 1979), "My Forbidden Lover" (#33 R&B, #43 Pop October 13 1979) and "My Feet Keep Dancing" (#42 R&B, #101 Pop December 8 1979). 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.
Risqué was transferred to compact disc and re-released by Atlantic Records/Warner Music in 1991 (catalogue number 7567-80406-2), and remains one of two Chic studio albums never to have been reissued in digitally remastered form.
