🎵All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

The problem is you dudes treat the one that you lovin'
With the same respect that you treat the one that you humpin'
Dat ain't 'bout nothin
If ever you mad about somethin', it won't be that, oh no, it won't be that
I don't be at places where we comfy at
With no be-atch; oh no, you won't see that
And, no, I ain't perfect; nobody walkin' this earth's surface is🎵- The Carters

One last #mood post: Whenever it rains more than two days consecutively, a Prince soundtrack automatically starts building in my head 💜 By the way I know I’m not doing this song true justice by posting it with my iFinesse app (🤷🏾‍♀️😂) but this is one of my favorite Prince songs. Specifically *this* version of the song which somehow didn’t make it on any of his albums (another version did...the one with less funk that TLC covered and it just doesn’t do it for me..🗣️release it from the vaults!!) and it gets taken down every few months 😩 So do yourself a favor and watch the full thing on YouTube while you still can (unless you can get a copy of Sign O’ The Times which this clip is taken from). It’s worth it alone for the epic ending sequence... #dreamy #ethereal #rainydayvibes #tenderfemmes #genderfluid #unintentionallyqueersongs #stillmissingprince #princerogersnelson #whenhehitsthatnote #waitforit #neptunianloveanthems #neptunetransits #thispinkfurtho #ifiwasyourgirlfriend #signothetimestour

Your favorite DJ could never transition from @prince to #Afrobeats so smoothly. 😏🤣 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ #IfIWasYourGirlfriend ➡️ #HeartRobber (@yemialade) ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ Every Monday I play music at @1800lucky with @the.kgn fam @jasonpanton, @fiyahyout_fiftykaliba, and @jahstream. They bring a reggae/dancehall vibe and I start things off with a blend of Afrobeats, reggaeton, dancehall, and R&B. It’s a laid-back vibe and an experimental space for me to find common ground between different genres of the #AfricanDiaspora.
Leaving for Cuba today, so I won’t be there tomorrow but I’ll be back there starting the 21st. Come through. 🤙🏽

5. 🎵Shockadelica:
📌Since the full versions of the remixes by Kirk Johnson in 1994 of Pop Life, When Doves Cry, Head and The Continental are known to exist, it is likely that a full remix for Shockadelica was also made at around the same time. 🎵Trivia: 📌Jesse Johnson's Shockadelica album contains his own version of Do Yourself A Favor and Crazay, a duet with Sly Stone that Prince would later sample on Housequake (7 Minutes MoQuake).

5. 🎵The New Power Generation - Contributions - Studio - With Prince:
📌Although The NPG band members have contributed to more than the following
releases, they were cited as being part of a limited number of albums and singles.
After 1992, even though Prince would work with The NPG (full band or shortened) as studio musicians, he would not usually let the name of his band appear as prominently as before on the covers of his albums.

6. 🎵The New Power Generation - Contributions - Studio - With Prince:
📌The album C-Note cut live with The NPG was not credited as such, the same goes for some of the promo releases surrounding the One Nite Alone... Live! album. 🎵As The NPG: 📌Throughout their existence the band releases three albums (mostly composed by Prince) two of which are released commercially.

7. 🎵The New Power Generation - Contributions - Studio - As The NPG:
📌Unlike former productions, Prince not only records the music with the band but also shares credits. The three albums are all of different incarnations of the band; Gold Nigga from 1993 features the 'original' NPG line up (after Rosie Gaines is replaced by Morris Hayes, whereas the follow up Exodus is the condensed version, minus The Game Boyz and Levi Seacer, Jr..

3. 🎵The New Power Generation - The 90's:
📌During the early nineties the band evolved from a backing band to an entity of its own, for which Prince composed material and produced a number of albums, like he had done for The Time previously. Members were encouraged to actively participate in the music creation process, for Prince's album as well as "The New Power Generation (shortened to The NPG) albums projects and other Prince's productions for protégé(e)s or related artists.

4. 🎵Shockadelica:
📌The track was included as the first track on the third disc as the Camille album developed into the triple-album Crystal Ball. On both albums, the track was followed directly by Good Love. Both tracks were removed when the album was eventually pared down and became Sign O' The Times. In 1995, a remixed version was partially included in the the Kirk J's B Sides Remix , along with parts of remixed version of Pop Life, When Doves Cry, Head and The Continental.

4. 🎵Little Red Corvette:
📌She first met him in 1976 and then again in 1979. She was a student at the University of Minnesota, locally known as 'Fancy Dancer' and thinks Sexy Dancer could also have been about her. Prince started dating her in January 1979. She lived in a duplex on Fuller Street in Saint Paul, MN and she had pictures of jockeys on her wall, among them Mike “Hercules” Weaver, whom at some point she also dated. Prince and her stopped seeing each other when she left Minnesota in 1980.

4. 🎵The New Power Generation - The 90's:
📌In 1996, Prince disbanded "The NPG" and all its members were taken of the retainer. He then began to form a new band, keeping only the "NPG" moniker. Although not being as prominent as in the former "NPG" concept, the band members kept an influential role during studio sessions and live performances. The third "NPG" album, Newpower Soul, reflected these changes: Prince was now openly a member of the band, and its lead singer.

2. 🎵The New Power Generation:
📌On the 1990 soundtrack album Graffiti Bridge there is also a song dubbed New Power Generation, but at the time it is not attributed to Prince's backing band per se. Like he did with The Revolution previously, Prince coupled his name with "The New Power Generation" on his two next albums.

2. 🎵Welcome 2 America Tour (21 Nite Stand) - 2011 – Inglewood, CA, USA – The Forum:
📌Riser seating (near the stage) was now $ 55 (+ fees) and the S.R.O. 'Purple dance pit' tickets were now $ 25, like the colonnade seating. The show up until the intro of The Glamorous Life was broadcast live on 102.3 KJLH radio in Los Angeles. Prince fan Cody Breedlove got on stage to sing on Play That Funky Music.

3. 🎵Shockadelica:
📌Prince sent the finished song to Jesse Johnson on an audio cassette. The track was premiered on Minneapolis radio station KMOJ a couple of days after it was recorded (a few weeks before Jesse Johnson's album was released). The song was included as the fifth track on the aborted Camille album (credited to the pseudonym Camille), and Shockadelica was intended as a single to be released around the same time as the album.

3. 🎵Little Red Corvette:
📌Basic tracking for Little Red Corvette took place at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on 20 May 1982, marking the first 24-track recording on a newly installed Soundcraft console in his home recording studio. After Prince's passing a woman from St. Paul named Mi-Ling Stone revealed she was the inspiration for the song.

2. 🎵If I Was Your Girlfriend (single):
📌The single reached only number 67 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, but reached number 12 on the Billboard Black Chart. It fared better on the pop chart in the UK, reaching number 20 on the Gallup Singles Chart. 🎵Trivia: 📌The single remained 9 weeks in the Billboard Black Single Top 40 Chart and 5 weeks in the Gallup Single Top 40 UK Chart.

2. 🎵Shockadelica:
📌Basic tracking took place on 16 September 1986 at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (two days after Coco Boys) after hearing that Jesse Johnson's forthcoming album was titled Shockadelica but had no title track. Prince felt that every album with a great title should contain a title track, but it seems that the song was not intended for Jesse Johnson, and was instead more of a joke to give the impression that Jesse Johnson stole the title from Prince.

2. 🎵Little Red Corvette:
📌In 2006, Little Red Corvette (Dance Remix) was included as the second track on the second disc of the compilation album Ultimate. The original album version has also been included as the b-side on various re-releases of 1999, the first single from Prince's fifth album 1999. •
2. 🎵Solid Gold:
📌Many other specials aired in which the dancers would dance to older pop hits as well. Reviews of the show were not always positive, with The New York Times referring to it as "the pop music show that is its own parody...[enacting] mini-dramas...of covetousness, lust and aerobic toning—routines that typically have a minimal connection with the songs that back them up."

1. 🎵Solid Gold:
📌is an American syndicated music television series which debuted on September 13, 1980. Like many other shows of its genre, such as American Bandstand, Solid Gold featured musical performances and various other elements such as music videos.

1. 🎵The New Power Generation:
📌is a band assembled by Prince in late 1990 in order to back him up during his live appearances. After disbanding The Revolution, Prince had been using a live backing band on tours from 1987 to 1990 that did not have a name as such. Following the 1990 Nude Tour, Prince first started referring to his band as "The New Power Generation", a term first used in the song 👁️ No.

🎵The Hits / The B-Sides - First steps:
📌Warner Bros. had initially considered releasing a larger 4-5 disc box set, but this was quickly rejected as the retail price was considered to be prohibitive. Prince contributed six previously-unreleased songs to the whole set, and at one point wanted to be more involved in the release, but Warner Bros. were already behind schedule on the set, and in the end paid Princenot to be involved.

🎵The Hits 1 - Content:
📌The previously-unreleased tracks were recorded at different points in Prince's career. Nothing Compares 2 U is included here as a January 1992, live version, although Prince's original unreleased studio version was recorded in July 1984. Pink Cashmere was recorded in June 1988. •
🎵The Hits 2 - Early project:
📌Warner Bros. had initially considered releasing a larger 4-5 disc box set, but this was quickly rejected as the retail price was considered to be prohibitive.

31 years ago today the genius released this song
The song is delivered from an androgynous male perspective to a woman, wherein Prince explores the possibilities of a more intimate relationship if he were his lover's platonic girlfriend it redefines a relationship in a surprisingly mature way."It is believed that "If I Was Your Girlfriend" deals with the jealousy Prince felt at the close bond shared between then girlfriend/fiancée Susannah Melvoin with her twin sister Wendy.[2]
* Mobb Deep sampled the song on their 1996 pre-Hell on Earth song "Young Luv". * In 2003, the Jay-Z/Beyoncé Knowles single, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" (from The Blueprint²: The Gift & the Curse) used several lines of "If I Was Your Girlfriend", and Prince was credited as one of the writers.
* 2Pac sampled a live performance of "If I Was Your Girlfriend" for his song "Thugs Get Lonely Too";
* George Clinton sampled "If I Was Your Girlfriend" for his song, "Heaven", off of his 2008 album George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love.

31 years ago, Prince released #IfIWasYourGirlfriend, which is one of my favorite Prince songs. The second single off Sign o' the Times originally from his alter ego Camille's project, the Purple One explores the possibilities of a more intimate relationship if he were his lover's platonic girlfriend. What a concept and what a classic. #Prince #PrinceRogersNelson #RIP

Regrann from @princearchives - On this day in 1987, Prince’s second single, “If I Was Your Girlfriend” is released from the album Sign o’ the Times. Stopping short of the Top 40 at number 67, the single deserved better than its radio play. Sonically and lyrically, the song was ahead of its time in 1987 with Prince smashing gender roles, not just as a sexual fantasy, but as a way of truly understanding his female partner. “If I was your girlfriend, would you remember to tell me all the things you forgot when I was your man?” In his vulnerable state, the singer pleads with his partner to open up to him the way she does with her platonic girl friends. “If I was your best friend, would you let me take care of you, and do all the things that only a best friend can?” The song became a fan favorite and was covered by TLC on their 1994 CrazySexyCool album and sampled by Jay Z and Beyonce in the song “03 Bonnie and Clyde” in 2003. Although it is an unconfirmed rumor, it is said that the inspiration for the song was that Prince was envious of the close relationship that his then fiancé Susannah Melvoin had with her twin sister (and Prince’s guitarist) Wendy. #prince #ripprince #sott #signothetimes #ifiwasyourgirlfriend #1987 #gender #genderroles
