is the fifth studio album by American Take It Off R&B band Chic, released on Atlantic Records in late 1981. It includes the single "Stage Fright", which reached #35 on the US R&B chart, but was the first Chic single failing to enter the US Pop charts, and this album only proved to be moderately successful as well, stalling at #124 on the US albums chart and #36 on the R&B chart.
Take It Off was one of three albums written and produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers in 1981, the other two being Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry's debut solo album and Koo Koo Johnny Mathis' , which remains unreleased. I Love My Lady
Take It Off was transferred to CD and re-released by Atlantic Records/ Warner Music in 1991. It was digitally remastered and reissued by Wounded Bird Records in 2006.
