Tyka Nelson (1988) L.O.V.E. 12″ Promo
Since Prince’s death earlier this year, Tyka Nelson has been, more or less, for better or worse, the face of his estate. She is Prince’s sister, born two years after Prince. In the late 80s, she attempted to start a music career of her own. Tyka Nelson released the album ‘Royal Blue’ in 1988. Three tracks were released either commercially or promotionally in support of the album: “L.O.V.E.”, “Marc Anthony’s Tune” and “This Girl’s Gonna Fall In Love”. Two of the singles charted on Billboard’s R&B singles chart, “Marc Anthony’s Tune” reached #33 and “L.O.V.E.” peaked at #52. They were the only two singles she ever charted with. Today’s record is “L.O.V.E.”, it was co-written by Tyka and produced by David Z. with Ricky Peterson. Shep Pettibone was brought in for the remixes and he contributed the Dance Mix and Dub Version.
