The Queen of Funk has set her sights on another crown: Chaka Khan will compete on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars.

The 10-time Grammy winner made it official in a brief video posted to the show’s Twitter account, asking fans to “look out for me this season.”

Khan, whose notable songs include “I’m Every Woman,” “Through the Fire,” and, yes, “Tell Me Something Good,” will strut her stuff against previously announced participants including Nick Carter, Hayes Grier, Victor Espinoza, Bindi Irwin, and Alexa and Carlos PenaVega.

Season 21 of DWTS premieres Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
