"Real People" is from Chic's fourth album Real People.It was the second single from this album and like its predecessor, featured a solo lead vocal by Luci Martin. Exploring new directions in the post-Disco era, CHIC continued incorporating harder rock elements into their sound as evident by Nile Rodgers' blaring guitar solos which kick-off and end the song. Audiences were caught off guard by the new CHIC sound. Prompting some radio programmers to flip the single and play the more upbeat/dancable B-side "Chip Off The Old Block" instead of the A-side. This, combined with other factors, resulted in the single not making much impact on the charts; peaking at #51 on Billboard's "Hot Soul/Black Singles" chart and #79 on Billboard's "Hot 100" chart. In the UK, the song "26" was released as a sin
