What was Prince's last greatest harmonization?

What do you think was the last greatest Prince harmonization and what would you think the reason why he didn't harmonized as much on his later projects? I would say that the end of the song Gold was his last greatest harmonization.

First song, For you was greatest but not last. Good point, he didn't do it as much after mid-90s

He had some great harmonies on the Symbol album. Seven in particular, his layered vocals are beautiful.

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

"The Breakdown" (hearing the vocals isolated at Paisley cemented my opinion)
"Revelation" (that "future queen" harmonization is beautiful)

IMHO, 👁 Wonder, unreleased track from 1990-1991, him singing that E9 chord in the chorus is just ridiculous

I love the harmonization on Colonized Mind (GREAT, CLEARly recorded song) -- with Shelby J, Marva King and Tamar Davis. Although this isn't really a harmonization; everyone's singing on the same octave.

I still love Prince's ability to sound SO GOOD with women in this exacgt way.

It also happens at the beginning of Baltimore.
