  • Prince teamed up with NPG rapper Tony M. for this braggadocio funk-rap track in which he boasts about his musical prowess.

    My name is Prince, I don't wanna be king
    Cuz I've seen the top and it's just a dream

    Tony M recalled to Uncut: "Stuff like, you must become a prince before your king anyway, those were direct shots over the bow at Michael Jackson. We were going in! It's an angry track, and we came hard."
  • The song samples previous Prince hits "I Wanna Be Your Lover," "Controversy" and "Partyup."
  • The music video features Cheers actress Kirstie Alley as news reporter Vanessa Bartholomew and Fox's News' Lauren Green as a studio anchor.
