Mayte (1995) If I Love U 2 Night UK 12″ Promo


Very Brief:
In 1995, NPG Records released Mayte’s one and only full-length album entitled ‘Child Of The Sun’. Prince produced the album and wrote or co-wrote all the songs except for “House of Brick (Brick House)” which was a cover of the Commodores classic “Brick House”. Another “cover” of sorts was “If I Love U 2 Night” which was one of 3 singles that were eventually released from the album. We visited last week with Mica Paris’ and Prince’s versions of this track. Prince decided to, once again, dust off one of his earliest written tracks and have a go at it with Mayte on lead vocals. Remixes of the track were released on CD and 12″ vinyl in the UK & Europe only. Remixes are credited to Bagheads and Endemic Void. I had to look them up on Discogs to verify they actually existed and weren’t some pseudonym of Prince, apparently they do exist. The CD and vinyl releases all featured the same mixes, although the track listings were not in the same order. The title on the record is actually listed as “If Prince's eye character ♥ U 2night”.

    There is something very special about this song, and Prince must have thought so as well to re-visit it. I think on this version he finally got the melody right. This version is awesome and Mayte actually sounds really nice on it.

    I loved this era so much. The middle of the 90s gave so much from the NPG and related artists, and of course we had the mighty Gold Experience and an awesome tour.

    Such happy days!!!
