01.) "CINNAMON GIRL" 2004 Musicology second single.
Cinnamon Girl was the second single to be released from the album Musicology, released six months after the album.

Three months before the physical release, however, United States Of Division was released on the NPG Music Club Musicology Download Store as a "virtual b-side" to Cinnamon Girl, although Cinnamon Girl itself was not available as an individual download, and no promos were sent out at the time.

The single is also unusual in that the artwork and tracklisting is entirely different for the North American and European versions of the single. The North American version contains the video and a making of the video documentary, while the European version, released six weeks later, contained audio and video of a live version of Dear Mr. Man, and the track United States Of Division.

The single did not chart in the USA, but reached number 43 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart.



02.) "MUSICOLOGY" 2004 first single from album  Musicology.
Musicology was the first single to be released from the album Musicology, released two weeks after the album's retail release.

Four weeks before the physical release, however, Magnificent was released on the NPG Music Club Musicology Download Store as a "virtual b-side" to Musicology, although Musicology itself was not available as an individual download.

The b-side on the physical release, On The Couch, was also taken from the album Musicology.



03.) "DAYS OF WILD" 2002 Xenophobia Celebration.
Days Of Wild is a live single recorded on the One Nite Alone... Tour, initially given to attendees at the final night of the Xenophobia Celebration as a one-track CD single, only nine days after the recording was made, before later becoming available to purchase online and at shows as a three-track single, including a live version of 1+1+1 Is 3 (as "1+1+1=3") and two edits of Days Of Wild.

The title track had previously been available in a different live form on the Crystal Ball album, so this single is often referred to, for clarity's sake, as Days Of Wild (Live In Montreal) - this title is erroneous, however.

Although recorded on the One Nite Alone... Tour, the title track was not included on the One Nite Alone... Live! album, although the live version of 1+1+1=3 from 6 April, 2002 was, albeit in slightly longer form (and more correctly titled 1+1+1 Is 3).

Of note is that the single is credited to Prince and the New Power Generation (shortened to Prince & The NPG) - the first time a single has been co-credited to the band since 1993's The Morning Papers.

Receiving only a limited release, the single was not eligible for the charts.



04.) "THE GREATEST ROMANCE EVER SOLD" 1999 maxi single related Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic.
The Greatest Romance Ever Sold was the first single from Prince's 23rd album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, the sixth album to be credited to O(+>.

It was released five weeks prior to the album, in the USA, Europe and the UK only, and featured remixes by popular remixers Jason Nevins and The Neptunes, as well as appearances from popular rappers Eve and Q-Tip.

The single's main b-side, The Greatest Romance Ever Sold (Adam & Eve Remix) (featuring Eve), was an entirely re-recorded version of the song containing samples of the original around a rap by Prince (as O(+>) and Eve in a similar vein to many of Prince's remixes from 1994-9 (many of the lyrics from this version were later reused on Silicon).



05.) "THE TRUTH" 1997 first available through 1-800-New-Funk related The Truth album.
The Truth is the first and only single released from Prince's 21st album The Truth, his fifth album credited to O(+>. The single was sold for $15.00 directly from the 1-800-New-Funk phone service and 1800newfunk.com in February 1997 (on the same day as the album Kamasutra by The NPG Orchestra).

Both tracks were available the following year on The Truth, which had been sent to music critics at the same time this single was made available.

Because of its limited release, the single was not eligible for any charts.



06.) "THE HOLY RIVER" 1997 Emancipation related single.
The Holy River was the second commercially-released single to be released from Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third album credited to O(+> (Somebody's Somebody and Face Down were released as promotional singles on the same date).

It was released two months after the album, and was available only in the UK and Japan (in the USA, the single was only available as a promo single, with the versions of Somebody's Somebody available instead on the Somebody's Somebody promo release).

In May 1997, the Borders Books & Music chain offered a cassette single of The Holy River free with any purchase. This cassette, which featured new artwork taken from The Holy River video, contained a previously-unreleased track, Welcome 2 The Dawn (Acoustic Version), which was labeled as coming from the "4thcoming album The Dawn", which remains unreleased. The track was later included on the album The Truth, however.

Since the UK and Japanese version contain remixes of Somebody's Somebody but not of The Holy River, it is likely the Instrumental released by the NPG Music Club in 2001 was in fact created for a US maxi-single of The Holy River that did not see release.



07.) "BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW!" 1996 Emancipation related single.
Betcha By Golly Wow! was the first commercially-available single to be released from Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third credited to O(+> (Slave had been available almost a year before, but only as a cassette giveaway at a Paisley Park Studios show).

It was released two weeks after the album, and was released commercially only in the UK and Australia, while in the US it was only released as a promo.

It marked the first time that Prince had released a cover version as a single. The b-side, Right Back Here In My Arms, was also taken from Emancipation.

The single was also released with an orange slipcover sleeve in the UK containing a fold-out poster of Prince (as O(+>) in Paris, although the tracks and inside artwork were exactly the same.

The single reached number 11 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart. In the US, it reached number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay Chart, and number 10 on the Billboard R&B Airplay Chart.



08.) "DINNER WITH DELORES" 1996 Chaos and Disorder related single.
Dinner With Delores was the first and only single to be released from Prince's 18th album Chaos And Disorder, the second album to be credited to O(+>. It was released a month prior to the album, and was released commercially only in the UK, Germany and Japan, while in the USA it was only available as a promotional release.

A few days prior to the single's release, on 7 June 1996, Warner Bros. streamed the song in RealAudio format on a special website dedicated to Chaos And Disorder, www.wbr.com/chaosanddisorder, the first time a Prince track had premiered officially online. A promotional cassette was also sent to members of the 'Controversy' fan club on the same date to commemorate Prince's 38th birthday.

The single reached number 36 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart but failed to chart in the USA.



09.) "THE GOOD LIFE" 1995 Big City Remix maxi single related Exodus.
The Good Life was the second single to be released from the album Exodus (first in the USA, where the album was ultimately not released), by The New Power Generation, in North America, United Kingdom, and Europe.

The single was re-released in the UK in 1997, following the Platinum People Mix receiving a lot of airplay on Rock FM 97.4, a radio station in the NorthWest of England.

The US edition contained some of the Get Wild remixes included on the UK/European editions of the Get Wild single, which was not previously released there.

The single did not enter the charts in the USA, but reached position 29 in the UK singles charts upon its initial release. It fared better when it was re-released in 1997, reaching number 15 on the UK Gallup Singles Chart.



10.) "P. CONTROL" Pussy Control 1995 Crystal Ball digital release.
P. Control was available as a promotional single from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+>, and was available a few months before the album's release.

This initial promotional release was titled Pussy Control, but the song was renamed P. Control for release. The CD also included the album recording of 319 with part of the preceding segue included in the track, bringing the track time to 3:19, marking the only appearance of this track at this length.

On 3 December 1995, an entirely different cassette single of P. Control was distributed to VIPs at the VH-1 Fashion Awards, containing two new versions of the track (Prince (as O(+>) also opened the award show, lip-synching to P. Control (House Mix), included on the cassette). P. Control (Club Mix) from the cassette was later included, in a very slight edit, on Crystal Ball.

Both versions of the single were available in limited quantities and therefore not eligible for the charts.

P. Control (a.k.a. Pussy Control) is the first track on Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, his first under the name O(+>. Earlier in 1995, however, the track (as Pussy Control) had been available as the first track on a Pussy Control promo single. In July 1995, clips of three remixes of the track were included on The Versace Experience (Prelude 2 Gold) promo cassette given to attendees of the Versace collection of Paris Fashion Week. In December 1995, a new cassette single of P. Control was given to attendees of the VH1 Fashion and Music Awards, containing two remixes of the track. In 1998, the Club Mix (now simply known as P. Control) was included as the eighth track on the third disc of Prince's 20th album Crystal Ball (his fourth under the name O(+>).

Initial tracking for the original version (known as Pussy Control) took place on 25 July 1994 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (the same day as horn overdubs on Realize). Prince premiered the song at Glam Slam, Minneapolis, MN, USA that night by playing it directly from CD during the concert. The track was included as the first track on an August 1994 configuration of The Gold Experience, and was kept as the opening track on a 13 October 1994 configuration. The song was renamed P. Control when it was added to the album due to concerns that retailers would not carry the album with a first track containing the word "Pussy" in its title. Additional recording took place at some point in 1994, but recording dates are not known. Remixes were made in 1994-5, including a version containing spoken vocals in French titled Chatounette Controlle (literally translated as "Little kitten control"), but again, recording dates are not known. Some remixes of the track were planned for inclusion on a planned The Hate Experience EP release, but it is not known which remixes, and the final release did not include any remixes of this track.

The House Mix of the track includes Prince's rap from some versions of Get Wild, and includes a musical finale reused from Mad.



11.) "GOLD" 1995 Gold Alternate Radio Mix With Guitar Solo promotional single.
Gold was the second commercial single to be released from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+>. It was released two months after the album, and was released worldwide.

The previously-unreleased b-side, Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis), received some press coverage as it was hastily-written and recorded as a response to Lenny Kravitz's hit song Rock And Roll Is Dead.

The single reached only number 88 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 92 on the Billboard R&B Chart. The single fared much better in the UK, where it reached number 10 on the Gallup Top 40 Singles Chart.



12.) "EYE HATE U" 1995 I Hate U Quiet Night Mix By Eric Leeds maxi single.
EYE Hate U was the first commercial single to be released from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to O(+> (The Most Beautiful Girl In The World had been released the previous year, but at the time, no album was attached to the single; P. Control and Dolphin had also received promo-only releases prior to this).

It was released two weeks prior to the album (the same day Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis) was recorded), and was released worldwide. A maxi-single followed a week later. The b-side was a remix, EYE Hate U (Quiet Night Mix by Eric Leeds), which was unavailable elsewhere.

The maxi-single also contained EYE Hate U (Extended Remix), containing entirely new lyrics by Prince (as O(+>) (in the same style as Mustang Mix or The Good Life (Big City Remix). The Japanese single also contained Endorphinmachine (also taken from The Gold Experience), marking its only appearance on a single.

The single reached number 12 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 3 on the Billboard R&B Chart.

The maxi-single is often referred to as "The Hate Experience", which is written on the cover (similar to The Beautiful Experience). A planned series of "Experience" maxi-singles connected to The Gold Experience was abandoned following this single.



13.) "SPACE" 1994 Space Universal Love Remix maxi single.
Space is the second track on Prince's fifteenth album Come, and, two and a half months after the album's release, Space was released as the album's second commercially-released single, released in North America and Japan. Space was also included in the 1993 Glam Slam Ulysses stage-show, during the segment titled "The Sirens" (credited, as was the whole project, to O(+>).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in mid to late May 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that also produced Pope, Strays Of The World, What's My Name, Interactive, Solo, and a reworked version of Race), and had been recorded for consideration in the aborted Come musical. The released version (and some of the remixes) contain repeated vocal samples from Ninety-9's track 40 Ounces (containing input by Prince) - it is unknown if this sample was added immediately or at a later date. On 7 July 1993, a mostly-instrumental version was recorded by Madhouse (during the same five-hour session that produced Carnac (later renamed 17), Edward (later renamed Asswoop or Asswhuppin' In A Trunk), (Got 2) Give It Up, Parlor Games and Rootie Kazootie, all of which were intended for a third Madhouse album, 24). It was included as the third track on the album 24, but the album, and this instrumental version, remain unreleased.

Space was the second single to be commercially released from the album Come, by Prince (although, following Letitgo, Come (actually the track Poem) was released as a promo single in Germany).

It was released two and a half months after the album (only three weeks before "The Black Album" received its eventual release), and received a release in the USA and Japan only.

The album version of the song Space was included only as the b-side of the single, with Space (Universal Love Radio Remix) as the lead track. A maxi-single was released on the same day as the two-track single, containing multiple remixes of Space, all of which contained new input by Prince.

The single reached only number 71 on the US Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.




14.) "LETITGO" 1994 Letitgo Cavi' Street Edit maxi single.
Letitgo was the first single to be released from Prince's 15th full-length album Come. It was released a week prior to the album, and received a release around the world. The b-side, Solo, was also taken from the album.

A maxi-single was later released containing multiple remixes of Letitgo, but none were remixed by Prince or anyone employed by him (of note is that the Original Album Version fades out fully, instead of overlapping with Orgasm as on the album).

In the UK and Europe, the CD single also contained Alexa De Paris (Extended Version) which had not previously been available on CD, and Pope.

The single reached number 31 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and number 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.

The single's cover photograph, like that of the album Come, was photographed by Terry Gydesen, and taken from the book The Sacrifice Of Victor (published the same year), which documented the 1993 Act II tour; the image used for Letitgo was the same image used on the book's cover.

The single (and the album that followed) were credited to "Prince", which led to some confusion, as he had publicly changed his name to O(+> a year before, and had worldwide success with The Most Beautiful Girl In The World under his new name.

The public argument was that the tracks on this album were recorded before the name change, but in fact Letitgo was recorded in March 1994, over eight months after the name change.


Letitgo is the ninth track on Prince's fifteenth album Come, and, a week before the album's release, Letitgo was released as the album's first single, released worldwide. In 2001, a 1995 live version was released as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 2. In 2005, the same live version was included on the Live From Paisley Park download EP.

Basic tracks were recorded on 16 March 1994 at Paisley Park Studios (hours before premiering studio versions of EYE Hate U, Billy Jack Bitch, Now, Days Of Wild and a remix of Pope at a party at Glam Slam, Minneapolis, MN, USA), five days after delivering the original configuration of the Come album to Warner Bros. Although credited to Prince (along with the rest of the album, which was recorded prior to the name change), Letitgo was recorded eight months after Prince began using the name O(+>. The album version's opening ("Ready or not, here I come") is sampled from the unreleased Vanity 6 track Vibrator, although actually extracted from Poem, which was divided up throughout the album as segues (culminating in the final track, Orgasm). Recording dates and studio details are not known for the remixes, which did not contain any new input by Prince. The Caviar Radio Edit and its variants were remixed by Q.D. III, son of famed producer Quincy Jones. Of note, though, is that the Sherm Stick Edit and the (-) Sherm Stick Edit are both based around looped samples of The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker (uncredited), which can be heard throughout the song.




15.) "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD" 1994 Mustang Mix The Beautiful Experience EP.
The Most Beautiful Girl In The World was released initially on a stand-alone single, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, as the first track to carry the artist credit O(+> (although seventeen months after the O(+> album), and the first Prince/O(+> to be release independently of Warner Bros. (see The Most Beautiful Girl In The World for more details).

Three months later, multiple remixes of the track were released on the The Beautiful Experience EP.

Later in 1994, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (Saxophone Version) was released by Brian Gallagher on his stand-alone single The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (containing O(+>'s original version as the b-side).

Around the same time, a gender-reversed recording titled The Most Beautiful Boy In The World sung by Mayte was released as a single which also contained a Spanish version, titled ¿Quieres Ser El Mas Bello De Este Mundo?. The Most Beautiful Boy In The World was included as the twelfth and final song on Mayte's first and only album Child Of The Sun, released in 1995.

In 1995, a slightly different recording of the track was included as the seventh track (fifth song) on Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, his first using the name O(+>. By this time, other versions using the same basic tracks had already been released, however.

In March of the same year, an instrumental version (titled Beautiful Girl) was released as a b-side on the New Power Generation's single Get Wild (the first single from Exodus), credited to "O(+> and Eric Leeds" (the only time they have shared an artist credit on a track).

O(+>'s original version and the remix Beautiful were also included on The Beautiful Experience TV movie.

Initial tracking for the original version took place on 20 September 1993 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (on the same day as Slave 2 The Funk). Remixes and overdubs took place in early 1994 (during the same set of sessions as EYE Hate U, Days Of Wild, and a new version of Shhh), although specific dates are unknown.

It was announced at one point that Prince (as O(+>) intended the song to be recorded in multiple languages by local artists, but it is unknown how many of these recordings took place; one recording that was made was Le Garçon Le Plus Beau Dans L'Univers by French model and actress Ophélie Winter (intended for a single, Le Garçon Le Plus Beau Dans L'Univers), but this remains unreleased.

Kahoru Kohiruimaki (who previously recorded Bliss and Mind Bells) recorded a Japanese-language version of the track as part of this project, but using new music with no input by Prince; as such, it is considered a cover version of the song and is not listed below (her version was released in remixed form on her 1995 compilation album White Kohhy Best '89-'95).

The Beautiful remix uses similar production to New World, which it replaced as the b-side for The Most Beautiful Girl In The World single (Warner Bros. only authorized Prince to release one song independently, causing New World to be removed).

The original version of the track was included as the sixth track (third song) on a March 1994 configuration of The Gold Experience, and kept as the sixth track (third song) on a May 1994 configuration. It was included as the seventh song on a Summer 1994 configuration, and the sixth song on an August 1994 configuration.

The Mustang Mix of the song was also re-recorded in 1996 at Paisley Park Studios, and was planned for inclusion on The Dawn album, and as a single release, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (Mustang Mix '96), both of which remain unreleased. The song's chorus is heavily sampled on the track 2morrow.

Mayte's version, The Most Beautiful Boy In The World, was included as the eleventh track (labeled a "bonus track") on an early version of her first album, which was titled Latino Barbie Doll at the time, with the Spanish version, ¿Quieres Ser El Mas Bello De Este Mundo?, included as the twelfth and final track (also labeled a "bonus track"), before the album underwent some changes prior to release.



16.) "LOVE SIGN" ft Nona Gaye June 1994 (promotional release only) 1-800 New Funk.
Love Sign was a promotional single released two months before the album 1-800 New Funk (a compilation of mostly-unreleased music largely written and produced by Prince/O(+>, recorded by other Paisley Park Records artists), and is credited to Nona Gaye and O(+>.

Following on from The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, the single uses the name O(+> and was released through NPG Records rather than Warner Bros., who had agreed that he could appear as a guest on the album (hence his name appears after Nona Gaye's), but did not authorize a single release; as such, the single was only available as a promotional item, and no commercial release was allowed.

The US promotional issues contained Standing At The Altar by Margie Cox (on vinyl) and 2gether by the New Power Generation (on CD), both of which were also taken from the 1-800 New Funk album. The German promotional CD included a radio edit and a longer version of Love Sign.

The single reached number 72 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Airplay Chart, and number 32 on the Billboard R&B Airplay Chart.



17.) "DAMN U" ft.  Brian Gallagher 1992 unreleased single of Sweet Baby.
Damn U is the eleventh track (tenth song) on Prince's 14th album O(+>, the second album to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation, and, five weeks after the album's release, Damn U was released as the album's fourth single (on the same day as the 7 single).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in January 1992, at Paisley Park Studios (during the same set of sessions that produced The Continental, The Flow, 3 Chains O' Gold, Born 2 B.R.E.E.D., With This Tear, Qualified and a revamped version of Sex).

Kirstie Alley's spoken part for the segue included at the end of the album version was recorded in early 1992 at Record Plant, Hollywood, CA, USA. The track was included as the 14th track (ninth song) on a March 1992, configuration of the O(+> album, and the 14th track (tenth song) on a late-Summer, 1992, configurations, until many of the album's segues were removed for release.

A version with the vocals replaced by saxophone by Brian Gallagher was recorded at some point in 1992, and was included as the b-side on a planned single of Sweet Baby in early 1993, but the single was left unreleased.
