was Prince's fifth album. He had just modest success to this point, his biggest hit being the #11 "I Wanna Be Your Lover
" four years earlier.
The title track
was issued as the first single in September 1982, about a month before the album was released. That song reached #44 US in December, and "Little Red Corvette" was released as the second single in February 1983. The song made a slow climb up the charts, reaching #6 in May. The next single, "Delirious," didn't come out until August and reached its chart peak of #8 in October.
From November 1982 to April 1983, Prince toured behind the album. As "Little Red Corvette" rode up the charts, he drew far larger crowds - the early dates proved to be some of his last theater shows, as he was a clear arena headliner by the end of the tour.
