Yes, I like Gayle's version as well. I will have to go back and re-watch Mayte and see what I think. I do love the song, though.

Yes, Mayte recorded two versions. One in English and another one in Spanish.
The original version was by Prince's band The Rebels with Gayle Chapman on lead vocals. Mica Paris also recorded it and released it as a single.

Here is the Mica Paris version of "If I Love U 2Nite". This is the album version which at the beginning samples "Halo" by Depeche Mode:

Very cool - thank you. Love Prince's version of this song, and Mica Paris did a nice job as well. Mayte isn't a strong enough singer to pull it off well, IMHO.

And Gayle Chapman has one hell of a strong jaw.

Mayte has a pretty enough voice to do a decent job on this song

Wish Prince did a non-falsetto version of it, that would've rocked

I guess you know me well, I dont like winter, but I seem to get a kick outta doing you cold

His old school mates are always a good interview. They are so different than the people who came on after he was a superstar.

The interview was very nice, thanks for sharing.
