We've discussed this track to death on two occasions already - the original Reloaded version with Andy's rap and then the subsequent release that removed it.

I love every version, but I think THIS one is the best. Just pounds and thumps and slams. Love love love.

Isn't it identical to the non-rap release?

Seems like a slightly different mix to me.

Falls way short of the original bootleg. Extra forgettable.

I am inclined to agree with you. It is like a toothless shark who once had a fantastic bite. Double row of teeth no less. Now not so much. Still, you can sort of hear the real song deep in there so I have not taken it off the playlist just yet, but it is living precariously...

I am glad they still edited out the rap part...those lyrics were more cringeworthy than rape, turning his momma on, daddy being gone and door number pants in original version.

I kinda wish they included the repeated lyrics "If U don't stop the groove Extra lovable beat tell ur body what 2 do" I always liked that part and fun way to end this song

Overall, I dig this new version cool

The worst thing on the album by far. Other than this hot mess and Screwdriver, it's a decent album. This track really taints it though, leaves a bad taste long after listening to it. That first spoken word line, my God.

I honestly canNOT understand how anyone could favor the original cut over this one. I just can't.

However my fave was the 2011 cut and its extended instrumental "remix", I think it's sexier with only synths and the horns, while gorgeous, kill a bit of the sexiness of it. Electrofunk is always the sexier than classic funk nod

I disagree. The original is awesome. I don't know if I have listened to the 2011 cut. I'll have to check that out.

I prefer the 2011 cut, but this one isn't bad. The original bootleg was a favorite of mine (other than that cringe-worthy rape line), but I actually thought the 2011 cut was better. The reloaded and album mix (which are near-identical) are just a bit too overproduced for my taste, but still...not bad.

The album version is my favorite of the updated sound and I never liked the 2011 version because of the female rap.

I edit the original boot to 5:41 and have it fade out when he starts calling Brown Mark.

That version has an energy that's mpossible for Prince to replicate all these years later.

I love all versions.

This has become my favorite version. I love the last couple of minutes. I wish he had added the instrumental version to the end.

Is the 2011 version the one with the woman rapping in the middle of it?

Where did this come out, I don't think I've ever heard it, was it the "B-side" of the vocal version?

Anyway as far as the song goes I really like this version, the horn breakdown in the middle is great and I just think it's one of his best songs for a long time. The original is great as well (apart from the gross rape lyric needless to say) and if we had it in perfect quality I would probably prefer it to this newer one, but I'm content to enjoy both, same thing with the two versions of We Can Funk music
