  • Lyrics
  • This future-soul trip finds Prince's vocals digitally transformed for the verses, before picking up steam for the hook sung in his famed falsetto. The song features his all-female touring band 3rdEyeGirl, who also played throughout PLECTRUMELECTRUM, an album that was released simultaneously with Art Official Age.
  • The song samples Mila J's "Blinded" from her 2012 mixtape, Japollonia Vol. 1. Mila and Prince go back a long way - she was a child actor in the Purple One's 1991 "Diamonds and Pearls" video.
