Fallinlove2nite was written especially for Prince’s appearance on the TV sitcom ‘New Girl’, the song also features its co-star Zooey Deschanel. Prince is fan of the show and was thereby approached to make a cameo as himself. Filmed on 12 December 2013, Prince appeared as himself in a cameo role in episode 14 of series 3, which he imparts relationship advice to characters Jess (played by Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson). The episode was aired on the Fox network on 2 February 2014 right after the Superbowl – a much coveted slot. The single was later released by Epic Records to all digital platforms, and in September 2015 was included in the album HITNRUN Phase One – albeit Deschanel’s vocals were removed from that version.
Fallinlove2nite is noteworthy for being Prince’s second only single to give joint billing to another performer (the first being Angie Stone with U Make My Sun Shine in 2001).
