What Time Is It?

Warner Bros. Records

Butt, my ass.

Under his deal with Warner Bros., Prince was permitted to form sign bands of his own to that label. Albeit credited to Morris Day and The Time, all the tracks on What Time Is It?, the second album by The Time, were in fact written, and the instruments performed, by Prince – credited as The Starr ★ Company (except for Wild And Loose2 whose lyrics are co-credited to Dez Dickerson and Morris Day). Despite not wanting The Time to perform on the album itself the band was required for the live show and joined Prince as his support act in both the Controversy Tour and Triple Treat Tour.

What Time Is It? is certified Gold by the RIAA, and hit number 26 on Billboard’s album charts.

The phone number 777-9311 actually belonged to Prince’s bandmate Dez Dickerson.
