Notes

There are two USA 12" pressings that got proper crediting for "Chic Music, Inc." but don't show the song being written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. These are: Rapper's Delight / Rapper's Delight.

There are four original USA 12" pressings that got proper crediting for "CHIC Music Inc.," but also showing the song written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. These are: Rapper's Delight / Rapper's Delight / Rapper's Delight / Rapper's Delight

The song's intro is an interpretation of "Here Comes That Sound Again" by British studio disco group Love De-Luxe. The track is formed extensively from the bass line from Chic's "Good Times" which originally was not cleared or credited to Chic. Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards threatened legal action over copyright, which resulted in a settlement and their being credited as co-writers.
