Great CD made me a fan, Cream, Insatiable, Gett Off and the title cut are highlights along with Thunder, Live 4 love and Money don't matter 2nite. However Jughead and Push drag it down.

This is the place where emotions grow. 24 Feelings all in a row, its alright, its alright

Barbara Lee, Who Starred with Prince, Remembers Singer

How She Met Prince

“I was leaving the LA Forum. I was going to China Club, and a girl approached me and said, "You need to come with me, you need to meet someone', and she said I can't tell you,” said Lee. “So I told the doorman if I don't come back in five minutes, that’s the car over there they’re bringing me to. “

“So they lowered the window just enough for me to see his eyes. And I was like, oh wow, it’s Prince, what do I do? He’s having a lollipop, and he asked if I wanted to hang out,” said Lee. “So my mom always told me never get into the car with a stranger, so me, in my Honda Civic, follow him along and I go into the gates of his house. He was a wonderful host, and just a wonderful man. He taught me how to drink tea. When you're young, you don't know these things.”

“When we first met, we hung out, and through the course of time I went along with him to Minnesota,” said Lee. “That’s when he asked me if I wanted to be in a video. He’d originally wanted for me to do Sexy MF, but then he had me do Insatiable. My mom was much happier, I can tell you that!”

“Insatiable” was released by Prince and The New Power Generation on the 1991 album Diamonds and Pearls.

One of the earliest songs that ended up on Diamonds and Pearls was "Live 4 Love", a track from 1989.[13] The bulk of the material would be composed in 1990, however. A few songs evolved during Prince's Nude Tour in 1990, notably "The Flow" and "Schoolyard". Prince decided to place an emphasis on rap with this album, handing the reins over to Nude Tour dancer, Tony M. An early version of the album from November 1990[14] consisted of the following:

"The Flow"
"Daddy Pop"
"Diamonds and Pearls"
"Cream"
"Strollin'"
"Willing and Able"
"Violet the Organ Grinder"
"Walk Don't Walk"
"Horny Pony" - unreleased version
"Money Don't Matter 2 Nite"
"Something Funky (This House Comes)"
"Schoolyard"
"Live 4 Love"
Most of these songs went through minor to major revisions before being released, and five of them did not make the cut at all. The five songs that were omitted from the album are "The Flow", "Violet the Organ Grinder", "Horny Pony", "Something Funky (This House Comes)", and "Schoolyard". "The Flow" would be revised for the Love Symbol Album. A later version of the album had "Horny Pony" in the place of "Gett Off", a newly-written track that replaced it at the last minute. In fact, "Horny Pony" still exists on the track listing, written in red over "Gett Off", and is mentioned in the lyrics to "Push".
