I want Nothing More than to love you.

Although Superconductor is Andy Allo’s first collaboration with Prince, it was her second studio album. Her first album UnFresh was released in September 2009, and in 2011, in LA at an event hosted by the Africa Channel marking the broadcast of a TV programme featuring Unfresh (Allo, 22, originally hailed from Cameroon), she was introduced to Prince. Just weeks later Allo into his touring band as a backing singer and guitarist for the Welcome 2 America Tour; during which the pair wrote the album, and in 2012 Allo became Prince’s girlfriend. Her song Nothing More, is inspired by Prince “the love of my life” (on listen, its melody is similar to 1993’s Pink Cashmere).

Prince wrote three of the album’s nine tracks: Long Gone, The Calm and the album’s title track, and arranges the music on the whole album, which was recorded between March and April 2012. All of Prince’s then touring band perform on it, as well as Maceo Parker (for People Pleaser and If I Was King) – his first work with Prince since 2001’s The Rainbow Children. Prince’s production on Superconductor is credited as ‘NPG’.

Prince references Allo’s When Stars Collide in the lyrics of his own song Rock And Roll Love Affair“He needed proof, she needed a brother. That’s when stars collide, when there’s space for what you want and your heart is open wide.” She left Prince’s band in 2013.
