Here's a video of an interview with Andy Allo and of her performing in Tokyo.

It's entitled "Three Questions with Andy Allo" and it was produced by Wax Poetics:

My favorite female protege of his and that is saying a lot because I love me some Sheila E. Moreso than any other female protege album, Superconductor is pure Prince chanelling his female self through Andy Allo. She had the talent, disposition and chemstry to pull it off. When I listen to Superconductor, it is another Prince album to me. The title says it all, she was a superconductor to channel Prince for that album. Many of the songs even have lyrics that are clearly intended for a man to sing, i.e., If I were a King. What takes her over the top for me is the work that she did with Prince beyond Superconductor. His best work of this decade were collaborations with Andy. Plus, she is just so darn perfect with that smile and positive disposition.

yes I wish he had followed his heart (and hers) and married her. But, to be sure, I don't buy into the notion that Prince wrote the entire album and just gave Andy credit, as many Orgers did at one time. There was even an entire thread dedicated to that notion a few years ago. I absolutely believe that she wrote the six songs that she is credited with and that Prince only co-wrote three songs. It is his PRODUCTION, not the writing, that makes it a Prince album. Huge difference.

Look At Me, Look At U

Look At Me, Look At U is the fourth track on Prince's 39th studio album Hitnrun Phase Two.

While initial tracking dates are unknown, it is believed that the track was recorded between Summer 2014 and late 2015, most likely at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

Typed lyrics for the track were found on a music stand in Paisley Park Studios Studio A following Prince's death on 21 April 2016(behind handwritten lyrics for Stay Cool), making it a possibility that he intended to record a remix or re-recording of the track, but this is unconfirmed. ~PRINCEVAULT.COM

Look at me
Tell me what U C
The back and forth of an earthquake
Goes strong and sturdy tree
Eye ask myself this question, but it's still a mystery
How eye'm gonna keep my balance when eye
Look at U

How can U not know
Standing over there like a Nefertiti, or the queen Dido
Please don't think too ill of me
It's all that eye can do
Not to feel myself when eye
Look at you

Modesty aside, whoever made U should be praised. Yes!
Ain't no need to hide
Every glass should be raised
Brandy or martini
Kudos overdue
What else is there really when eye
Look at you?

Fight it, yes, my soul has tried
When U look at me
All other women just roll their eyes
But even Ray Charles can see U
Stevie Wonder can 2
Thoughts well up and wonder
Thinking about me and U
A dozen fantasies U
Call me won and done
When U look at me
Look at U, look at me

Dr Funk said in a recent podcast that Andy actually wrote If I Was King for Prince to sing but she liked it so much she took it back. I heard a concert clip where she told the audience the same. She also said that Superconductor was their album. Andy seems to own the rights to it since she is selling it again on her website. The album does have a very Prince like feel to it.

I think her songwriting ability was yet another thing that Prince loved about her...and that sets her apart from all other Prince protegés.

Superconductor



I wanna be loved by a Super Conductor
Every night another symphony
Sung like a spiritual music
You and I in perfect harmony

The first time anticipate
Don't need a reason it’s better to wait
Rock n roll marriage consummate
Everyone’s invited so don't be late

Every time we levitate
Our body rhythm it’s just so great
In perfect time never late
Never too early we syncopate

I don't need to know about your past no need to know about mine
Maybe til I see if your words and actions match up and rhyme
I don't need to hear about the things you want I'll find out in time
Then we can say if we're gonna stay at your place or mine

I wanna be loved - by a Super Conductor
Every night another symphony
Sung like a spiritual music
You and I in perfect harmony

E-O-lectric Lightening, E-O-lectric

From the big city to Cameroon
We make em happy we make em swoon
This rock n roll life sleep in til noon
Might take its toll very soon

Despite the odds we like our chances
The music heals, the spirit dances
Even though they told me this bad romance
Was just another reason to get in my pants

We don't want to talk about the ones who say we're living in a dream
Maybe they're the ones asleep and need something to believe
Long as they give us the time we'll give 'em a reason to stare
Long as I got you by my side I really don't care

Just wanna be loved - by a Super Conductor
Every night another symphony
Sung like a spiritual music
You and I in perfect harmony

I wanna be loved
I really do uh
Never knew a feeling like I do with you
Sugar sweet verse and chorus together
All around the world ain't nothing ever been better

Than Love by a Super Conductor
Every night another symphony
Sung like a spiritual music

Loved
Superconductor

All Around The World
Superconductor
Superconductor
Superconductor
Superconductor
Superconductor

All Around The World

Superconductor is the first song on Andy Allo's second album Superconductor (her first on NPG Records). A 15-second clip of the song (without lyrics, other than the title spoken once) was used in a video on Andy Allo's Facebook page eight months before the album's release. The song is co-written by Prince, and he appears on unidentified instrumentation on the track.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in Summer 2011 - early 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA or Powerplay Studios, Maur, Switzerland.

I agree. Some thought Prince probably wrote False Alarm for Oui Can Luv and Monday she revealed on Facebook she wrote it. They seemed to inspire each other. Someone asked her on Facebook if she had written many songs about Prince and she replied that she had written many songs about him and added probably too many with a laugh.

Andy still has the video for U Will B on her Facebook. She said in a Spreecast in 2013 that was the only version they recorded and they tried again in the studio and it didn't have the same feel to it so they left it at that.

Thank you. I found it.

U Will B is beautiful. I wonder when they recorded it. Maybe it was orignally meant for Superconductor.Prince said in an interview with DrFunkenberry they recorded some duets during that time.When Andy did her takeover of Funkatopia radio in 2014 she said the duets on AOA were recorded while making Superconductor.She also said What It Feels Like was inspired by her song When Stars Collide. Funkatopia re-aired it a few weeks ago and it should still be up on their website. I think 1000 Light Years at the end of Black Muse was a duet of theirs as well.

I'm not sure to be honest.He and Sheila is the only one that comes to mind but there may be others in the vault. The interview with Andy on funkatopia.com is still up btw. She shares some cute stories and the interviewer Mr.Christopher plays some of her favorite songs along with the duets on AOA and a story about the recording of Time. I think he and Andy really enjoyed working together. There may be more duets in the vault.She replied on Facebook that there were some awesome acoustic cuts laying around.That was in 2014 so she may have meant the Oui Can Luv album.

Did he and Sheila do sexy love songs together? If so, on his or her albums? There is Bria's "Elixir," but that was on her album?

TIME


This song about time
Say its about time
About time that u
R around

I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u

Alone with u

I think I'm running out of patience
I think I'm running out of lies
I think its 'bout time I tell the truth
Instead of these alibi's

Well...
I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u
Cuz ure so fine
When I get mine
Baby u can too

No more peace and quiet
I wonder why
A party full of drunken fools
I betcha some will b the rushing tide
Splashin all over u

I don't wanna work another day baby
No no stay with me
I wish u coulda stay with me
Stay with me
I don't think it matters anyway
It don't matter girl
For u I'm as rich as I could be
Baby baby

I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u
I know u know
Cuz ure so fine
When I get mine
Baby u can too
Sho 'nuff

Sugar well I'm thinking
That u really need 2 b my pet
And let me put u in my little cage
C'mon
Im sick and tired of playing hard to get
With an animal that's half my age
Sugar well well
My heads a little dizzy
My heads spinning 'round and 'round
Another dirty hotel room
Another lonely town

I need some time to rest?
I need some time with u

This is what it feels like

I know what I wanna do

This is what it feels like

Gonna lemme tell u one time

I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u
Cuz ure so fine
When I get mine
Baby u can too

Oh oh I think I need u 2 b my girl
Travel with me around the world
Baby baby
So no paper
This works out fine
But not half as fine
As when I get time
With u

Sugar have u heard

I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u
Cuz ure so fine
When I get mine
Baby u can too

Keep breakin u down.

Down down down

I think its 'bout time
That I got time
Alone with u
Cuz ure so fine
When I get mine
Baby u can too

U, u, u, u

Baby baby u can to!

Ooh ooh oh...

Time is the twelfth track on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age. The track is a duet between Prince and Andy Allo.


While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track includes lyrical portions of both Breakdown and What It Feels Like, indicating that it was recorded after both tracks.

I don't think Bria was a true collaboration though. I think he did write the songs on her album with maybe her adding a word or two to give her writers credit. With Sheila I think it was more of a collaboration at least musically. Love Bizarre is pretty sexy but I'm not sure if they wrote it together or not and it's not really a duet though Prince is singing with her. He and Sheena Easton did some duets too. Tamar Davis sang on a few songs on 3121 as well. Incense and Candles is a sexy duet.

Some of the songs on Phase II seem to have been written around the time they made Superconductor as well. Big City is mentioned in Superconductor and in 2013 Prince performed them back to back.Also sounds like Andy on backing vocals on 2Y2D as well as her laugh at the end.And of course R&R affair.

The buzz began with a Facebook post from Tower Café on June 5 announcing that purple
royalty came in for lunch. No, it wasn’t Jimmer Fredette or Tyreke Evans. It was music icon Prince on a whirlwind tour of Sacramento. Over the course of that week (during which he celebrated his 54th birthday), the artist formerly—and now again—known as Prince, was also spotted at Cafeteria 15L, Corti Brothers (where store director Rick Mindermann confirms that someone ordered a veggie sandwich at the deli counter and wrote “Prince” on the order ticket), hung out at Mix Downtown, saw the movie Prometheus at the Esquire IMAX Theatre and shopped for some music at Records on Broadway.



So what brought the Purple One to town? It was his new protégé, Andy Allo, a 23-year-old Sacramento singer with large eyes, a slight frame and a striking, tightly curled afro. Her new album Superconductor, scheduled for release in late September, was executive produced by Prince and also features several songs that he co-wrote with Allo. And yes, it was Allo who took the Minnesota musician to Tower Café for a plate of its signature custard-soaked French toast, surrounded by the restaurant’s eclectic collection of Asian and African art and artifacts.



In fact, Allo herself is something of an African cultural export, moving to Sacramento 12 years ago from her native country of Cameroon.



In 2000, she and her sister Suzanne moved to the United States to join her Caucasian mother Sue—a teacher from Lodi who had relocated to California earlier because she was battling chronic fatigue syndrome—and their three older siblings here. (Allo’s father Andrew, an African ecologist after whom she was named, stayed behind


...



Today, Allo finds herself once again at Fox & Goose, this time reflecting on the unexpected journey that has taken her from Second Saturday to the pages of Vogue and an international tour alongside Prince. But, she says, standing in the high-ceilinged, ephemera-packed British pub, “This is where it started.”



It was here, over dozens of performances, that Allo refined her sound (reminiscent of Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill that she calls “alter-hip-soul”) and amassed enough material for her first album UnFresh, which was self-financed. “I didn’t want to rely on anyone else to do it for me,” she says. That challenge intensified when, halfway through recording, she nearly ran out of money. But it was around that time that her other career—modeling—began taking off. She joined the local agency Cast Images, and modeled for brands and products such as Sprint, AT&T and Sony PlayStation 3. “It funded my music.” She also held other decidedly less glamorous jobs around town, including ones at an insurance agency and a bowling alley.


...



But the trajectory of her music career shifted dramatically in April 2011 while attending a Prince concert in L.A. when a friend from The Africa Channel (who had first aired an in-studio performance by Allo the year before) introduced her to the iconic musician. “Oddly, it was very calm. He’s like a superhero, but doesn’t put on any airs, and is just a really smart, down-to-earth person,” she recalls of the meeting, during which Prince invited her to hang out and play with his band after the show that night.



The two clicked instantly, she says, and Prince invited Allo to join him on his upcoming summer tour, sometimes opening for him but mostly playing guitar and singing alongside him and his band NPG (New Power Generation). “I was thrilled to get that opportunity,” she says. But first, he put her through “music boot camp,” educating her on artists like Joni Mitchell, Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and James Taylor. He also brought her up to speed on his own storied musical history (Purple Rain came out five years before Allo was born). “He said I had to learn decades of songs—and he has tons and tons of music,” she says.



Only a few months later, in June 2011, Allo joined Prince on stage for the first time at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Just days after that, they were playing to over 50,000 fans at Paris’ Stade de France to open Prince’s “Welcome 2 Europe” tour. “I just jumped in head first,” she says.


Between the tour, paparazzi shots of them sitting front row at a Versace fashion show, and now the recent sightings in Sacramento, rumors have swirled for months that Allo and Prince are romantically involved, though Allo insists that the two are just close friends. “He’s a mentor, with a lifetime of wisdom, and someone that I can ask anything,” she says.



On Superconductor, Prince plays guitar on several tracks and his NPG band (as well as seasoned contributors like Maceo Parker and Trombone Shorty) plays saxophone, bass and other instruments while she croons of needing a “Superconductor” man on the title track (co-written by Prince) or bemoaning time wasted on selfish guys on the soulful “People Pleaser.” “It was a true collaboration,” says Allo.



Standing only a few feet away from the stage where she cut her musical teeth at Fox & Goose, Allo says her bucket list used to include, “Go on tour, record a second album, and travel the world.” And she adds proudly, “I knocked off those things in one year.” She also recently caught the eye of Vogue, who featured the 5-foot-4 beauty in a fashion spread for the April 2012 issue. But, she explains, modeling is about to take a backseat role in her life. “Now is [about] music,” she says, adding that she will likely tour this fall, and she plans to include a few Sacramento shows. Does that mean Prince will be back for another Sacramento tour? She smiles and says coyly, “You’ll have to see.”

I also wondered about her height. Whatever the case, she loves high heels. She'd often wear them onstage with Prince, which makes me think she might really be 5'4"

I've been trying to find it. So far, the album is nowhere to be had (unless you know otherwise). And, everybody who hears "Oui Can Luv" wants to know where to buy it!! Let's hope the estate soon releases it.

I hope so too! I finally got to hear it recently and it is lovely.I especially love her version of More Than This. The album was circulating on line for a while which is how I heard it. Andy said Monday she thinks it will be released one day.

You can't buy it, it was never officially released.

Keep looking, the tracks are out there!

...every night another symphony...

Loved them together <3 I think she was a big inspiration to him and he looked very healthy and happy and when she was around. I think they were in love. Andy seems to be taking things pretty hard still...at least she'll have the memories. Hoping the Oui Can Luv album is formally released one day.

With her picture up in the galaxy room at PP it seems Prince still had a special place in his heart for her in some way.
