^^Jesse wasn't too happy about this."It would make people think that I stole his idea",he complained in a 1986 Rock N'Soul magazine interview."He's a bigger artist than I am.If he puts that song out ("Shockadelica)",it would reach a massive audience that I haven't even reached yet".

Is poverty bringing U down?

Lolly Lolly (According To Prince) is a remix Prince made of Wendy & Lisa's track Lolly Lolly, the first track from their second 'solo' album Fruit At The Bottom, and was released as the a-side on the album's second single Lolly Lolly. In 2011, it was included as the 13th track (a bonus track) on a re-release of Fruit At The Bottom. The track was written and produced by Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman. This is the only instance of Prince contributing to Wendy & Lisa's 'solo' work after leaving The Revolution, and the earliest example of Prince remixing a track that he had not created himself.

Prince's remix session took place on 30 November 1988 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

Is this the only instance of Jesse Johnson contributing?

He seemed pretty active between 85-89
