''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.

"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 (catalogue number 7567-80406-2), and remains one of two Chic studio albums never to have been reissued in digitally remastered form. - Wikipedia
