Come 2 My House
He had my poster on his wall.
Chaka Khan was Prince’s long-term friend and musical influence, who in 1984 famously re-recorded his 1979 hit I Feel For You for her own album of the same name. That album went Platinum and the title track won Prince a Grammy for Best R&B Song and became the 5th highest selling single of 1985. Prince had given her his blessing to re-record it to help reboot her ailing career, yet they did not actually meet until fourteen years later.
In 1998, Prince’s co-produced Come 2 My House to again help relaunch her in the US, and wrote ten of the album’s thirteen songs. The project was complete from start to finish within just two weeks. On it, she covers Prince’s song Don’t Talk 2 Strangers, and the 1974 track Hair by Larry Graham who was likewise receiving Prince’s help to boost his career with his co-produce album named GCS2000. Prince’s work on this project is credited under his then name Prince love symbol.
Prince and Khan often performed I Feel For You together during the Newpower Festival tour on which she joined Prince as his support act in promotion of their trio of albums, Come 2 My House, Prince’s own studio album Newpower Soul and Graham’s GCS2000.
