Apollonia 6

Warner Bros. Records

Despite being credited to the band, all the tracks were written by Prince, as well as performing every instrument. Its 22-year-old lead singer, Patrica “Apollonia” Kotero, was auditioned in New York following the departure of Denise Matthews from the band’s earlier incarnation Vanity 6. Kotero also fulfilled Matthews’ role as lead female and Prince’s muse for the movie Purple Rain after which embarked on an acting career as Apollonia Kotero. The two remained close ever since.

Two of Apollonia 6 album’s outtakes include the hits The Glamorous Life (instead recorded and released by Sheila E. for her debut album) and Manic Monday (given to and released in 1986 by The Bangles). The group Apollonia 6 was disbanded following the Purple Rain Tour. Prince’s production credit on the album is under the name of The Starr ★ Company, he is not credited by name.
