This song is crying out 2 be covered. I can imagine Miley Cyrus or Pink singing it as they have the attitude and swagger that the song needs.

Ready for a sexy weekend version of ?

Aug 11

36 yrs ago 2day (8/11/82), Vanity 6's self-titled album was released. Denise Matthews went on to release additional projects as Vanity for years, but the Prince-produced debut was their first & only album for the group, Vanity 6. |

Aug 11

The production team at The Starr ⭐️ Company (wink, wink) preferred to remain anonymous, but we knew Mr. Nelson was behind the sexy trio. |

Aug 11

Prince not only kept a lot of his production & songwriting work private (by using pseudonyms or crediting others), but he also was private about his relationships. However, his bond w the lead singer of Vanity 6 (Denise Matthews a/k/a "Vanity") was real.

Aug 11

In truth, Prince's relationship with music was his most powerful and longest-lasting union & he continued to use Vanity's voice in recordings for years.

Aug 11

"He's So Dull" was the only non-Prince produced track on the album. Dez Dickerson provided the upbeat tune, which also appeared in the 1983 classic "National Lampoon's Vacation", for the trio.

"He's So Dull" was released as a single; as was the aforementioned "Nasty Girl", "Bite The Beat" & Drive Me Wild".

Aug 11

I do enjoy the whole album, but is UNDISPUTED. |

Aug 11

Releasing the Vanity 6 LP on 8/11/82 was only Prince's 1st move in a musical chess game where '1999' eventually represented the ultimate checkmate. Prince followed the release of Vanity 6's debut w a blazing hot sophomore release from The Time (): .

Aug 11

Once he had his sexy girl group established & The Time were recognized as a funk powerhouse; Prince dropped 1999 & changed music forever. The 1999 "Triple Threat" Tour kicked off w all 3 acts in Nov 1982. Prince knew his team was THE force to b reckoned with. |

Aug 11

So please listen to this album 2day for Denise Matthews, Brenda Bennett, Susan Moonsie, Prince Rogers Nelson & me. wink |
