She's using the perfect timing to promote her song. Kind of a thin line she's walking. But I think that she also does have some regret probably because she didn't make peace with him while he was still alive. It's too late now but all one can do is write about regrets bheart bheart bheart bheart bheart

Don't know the background - was there a rift between them ?

isn't she milking his death a little for commercial purposes? The Prince tribute on Sunday, immediately after the song/video is releases, a Prince tribute album ? Sounds to me like she's trying to make some cash ...

I would somewhat agree with you IF ... she sang this at the BET awards BUT ... she didn't.

This song is not going to be a big commercial hit .. it's a very real, honest and distilled reflection of what she felt for him .. to honor him.

On Sunday she left it all on the stage to honor Prince and now this song ... beautifully expresses her grief.

I'm glad she put this out into the world and her timing is perfect, in my opinion. She's grieving a very special era in her life.

Show your heart to me.

I don't think so. I think she waited until after the tribute to be respectful. It's part of her healing. Did I pay 1.29 for a download? You bet I did. Small price to pay. She is a good person with a good heart and I love this song. It's from her heart.

I really enjoyed this song and in the video when there was a flash of a photo of Prince at the beginning of his career and her when she was about the same age around the time they met each other, I lost it. Brought tears to my eyes. I can ony imagine the grief she must be feeling but I think making this song, video and in addition, doing that amazing tribute on BET was very cathartic for her.

If she were trying to make some cash. she should have promoted the song at the BET Awards and made it so that we couldn't hear the song, until after we purchased it. But she didn't do any of that, did she?

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

where have U been?

You must read her book

His reputation as a ladies' man was quite deserved. How many women did he propose marriage to I wonder? razz

Incidentally, her rendition of "Housequake" at the BET Awards was out-of-this-world funky!

'marry me' and 'taking baths' are a very common theme in Prince's music lol

Yes I love Housequake, she took it back to 1987

I hope she does more of the songs she did during her tribute(that wasn't a BET tribute that was a Sheila E Tribute lol) the owwwhaaa she had so much in her, she probably would have done a song each album from Prince the Time Sheila E the Family & Madhouse lol

She's working on another tribute album? I'm wondering if she had regrets because the last time they were together, she left him behind on that tour. When that person passes away, u can't tell them just how much they r 2 u. Aww... must be really hard 4 her. sad sad [Edited 6/27/16 21:50pm]

No, she didn't leave him. Prince brought her and Cassandra(her keyboardist) and before they made it to Italy Prince took her off the tour and sent her home and kept Cassandra. Then during the Welcome 2 America tour in California he was supposed to have her and the EFamily open, then at the last minute took them off. After that she basically said she had to work to get her shows/career moving.


When Prince summond her for a Michigan show, she declined.

But they reconciled sometime last year, when she flew out to Minneapolis

not at all. Music doesn't sell like that anymore.
Musicians/Artists/Painters/Dancers express themselves through that avenue

I cannot wait for more Sheila E shows were she does America Let's Work Baby I'm A Star Housequake U Got the Look

Bad idea watching this at work. I had to excuse myself, that was beautiful. I lost it as soon as I saw his face. Don't think this is something I can listen to often.

Me too. I still love the song even though it is sad. I think this is probably a necessary step in her healing process. Always loved Sheila, a brave strong soul.

I liked the song very heartfelt and tissues were needed.
Maybe Sheila is doing this as a way to cope.
Has got to be very hard to loose a friend after 38 years.
I hope this song and upcoming tribute album help her!

I certainly sounds like Clare Fischer, but Claire Fischer has been dead for a number of years now. If it's a new song then it cannot be Clare Fischer.

Brent Fischer, Clare's son, probably created the string arrangement. He worked with D'Angelo on "Really Love".

I have to agree... that a few people have taken to calling her Sheile mE. mE. mE. is perhaps crude but not without a little merit. I'm sure she's hurting but there seems to be some angling going on, imo. ...and it was bad enough that the media kept referring to her as his former fiance (as opposed to all the others he's had) but she's doing so on her own website. She wasn't labeling ehrself that way prior to his death and I doubt he'd like to see it now.

I'm not feeling it. Don't like the song, video was ok, it fit the feel of the song. But no tears, no responsse. I had more feeling for the performance on Sunday than this.

What am I missing?

What does mE mean? I don't get it.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I was hoping for more than that, than there was the org build up-everyone is crying and all emotional. I get nothing

I do still want to know what mE means?

At first I thought it was maybe a protest against what wearing high heels does to the body, but someone mentioned that maybe it was a statement that no one could fill Prince's shoes...
