  • This track, on which Prince criticises "dirty fat bankers," is from the American musician's 33rd studio album, 20Ten. The record was given away free with various newspapers and magazines in Europe, such as The Daily Mirror in the United Kingdom and Rolling Stone in Germany.
  • Prince explained the album title to The Daily Mirror: "I just think it's a year that really matters," he said. "These are very trying times." The Jehovah Witness believer added one problem is that "people, especially young people, don't have enough God in their lives."
