Patrice Rushen and "I wanna be yo lover"

I just took a hard listen on "I wanna be your lover" 2day and I was thinking what if Patrice Rushen SANG it when P gave her that song, ya know?? wink Doing her synthsizer solo and Prince back-up vox with Freddie W.'s bass. now would that be heavy or what??

Why did she truned off this track and how did she hook up with Prince??

Man, that would be intersting if she worked with Prince in his new whatever LP, join the celly or even join his band as a keyboardist after Mr.Hays.

I'm confused.Did Prince write this song FOR PATRICE TO RECORD or did he write it ABOUT HER? I've heard conflicting stories throughout the years.They say that he did indeed have a crush on her,and that she helped him out with synthesizer programming on his first album.She also briefly joined his band in 1989 (you can see her during the "Electric Chair" performance on that 'SNL' special).Patrice is great,and it's a shame that the two of them didn't do more work together.

LOL NOPE

He wrote it 4 Patrice 2 record but she gave it back 2 him according 2 Alan Leeds linernotes in the Hits/B-Sides. Beside, its not even strange if he DID write it about her cuz like you said wink he had a cruch on the sistah.

Chaz, P's cousin said in recent Uptown article that Prince never had a crush on Patrice, was just a fan of her music.

Prince wrote "I wanna Be Your Lover&Why you wanna treat me so bad? for Her but She turned them down.He had a Crush on Her&Patrice is Stuffed like a Pizza.GOOD GAWD!!!Patrice&Her Boyfriend at the time helped with some Programming on the "For You" Album.I Once read where Patrice had a One on One Conversation about His Feelings about Music.time for 6 Degrees: Patrice use to Be Larry Graham's Girlfriend&Larry's Wife Tina&Patrice were Best Friends.funny how small the Circle of Life is Huh??

The other song he wrote for her was i feel for you not why you wanna treat me so bad. I can't see why he would have a crush on something looking like that.

Maybe Prince was swept away by admiration/adoration. Patrice is very talented and she's beautiful. You on the hand other probably look exactly like "a dog". No I take that back, dogs should not be compared to a shallow m@#)e^f*$c@!r!
