Camouflage is the tenth studio album by funk band Rufus (billed as Rufus with Chaka Khan), released on the MCA Records label in 1981. Camouflage peaked at #15 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and stalled at #98 on Pop. The album includes the singles “Sharing the Love” (US R&B 8, US Pop #91) and “Better Together” (US R&B #66, US Dance #56).
Following the release of Camouflage, Chaka Khan recorded her third, fourth and fifth solo albums What Cha’ Gonna Do For Me (1981), Echoes of an Era (1982) and Chaka Khan (1982) and Rufus recorded their third album without Khan, Seal in Red (1983), before they reunited for one final album together later in 1983, the double live/studio set Stompin’ at the Savoy – Live.
