La Havas penned this song about her first real-life heartbreak. "I'd never experienced it before," she told The Observer. "Just the most unbelievable pain. It makes you want to kill yourself." The singer added that she doesn't regret what happened. "To write you have to experience true happiness and extreme pain."
Prince covered this song of bruised despair and invited La Havas to jam with him at Paisley Park, in Minneapolis. When they first spoke on the phone, the Purple Rain maestro told her he liked to imagine he was the older man in her song "Age."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
