The second of 3 Prince-penned singles released from ‘Martika’s Kitchen’ did not fare as well as its predecessor. The title track from the album spent only 2 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. It did do a little better in the UK reaching #17 and in Australia getting to #29. The highlight of this 12″ is the Prince mix of “Love… Thy Will Be Done”. The lowlight is Tony M. rapping on the Alt. Dub Version 😉
Mica Paris released her debut album at the tender age of 19 in 1988. While working on her 1991 follow up album, she recorded Prince’s composition “If I Love U 2 Nite”. Prince originally wrote and recorded the song back in 1979 but, it was never officially released by anyone until Mica included it on her ‘Contribution’ LP. Later Prince would re-record the song with Mayte and that recording was included on the ‘1-800-NEW-FUNK’ album in 1994 and on Mayte’s ‘Child Of The Sun’ album in 1995. This 12″ includes 2 remixes by Nellee Hooper who was in high demand from his recent work with Soul II Soul.
When recording her second album, ‘Martika’s Kitchen’, Martika enlisted the aide of Prince who produced four of the 12 tracks on the album. The most successful of those tracks was “Love… Thy Will Be Done” which garnered Martika a Top 10 pop hit in the US & UK and a #1 in Australia. This 12″ provides the 7″ Edit version and two album cuts on the flipside. The track “Temptation” was covered later in 1991 by Patti LaBelle on her ‘Burnin’ album. We’ll take a look at some more Martika records next week, have a great weekend everyone!
