Bria Valente (real name Brenda Fuentes), a fellow Minnesotan, had known Prince since the early 1990s when introduced to him at Paisley Park by Morris Hayes when she was aged 17. Valente was a model and dancer for Usher and sung on his 2001 album, and after a chance meeting met Prince again in 2007 and lent her backing vocals to Mister Goodnight for his album Planet Earth and Song Of The Heart. She and Prince started dating, shortly after, and in 2007 produced a solo album for her, named Elixer, on which she sings lead vocals.
Prince co-wrote every song with her and solely wrote Kept Woman. The album was released on 29 March 2009 as part a triple CD set with LotusFlow3r and MPLSound exclusively through US store chain Target. The trio were earlier available as MP3 downloads from Prince’s official website lotusflow3r.com from 24 March, for one year, and the physical package peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s album chart. Valente’s relationship with Prince lasted approximately two years.
