The Prince-penned jam, which was produced by Josh Welton is featured in a behind-the-scenes clip from the Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2015 campaign.
The song sees the songstress sensuously purring above a throbbing pulse, luxurious guitars and bright horns. “She looked up and there he was, and now she’s firmly distracted/Up and down in fact, because…definitely attracted,” she sings. It’s a fairly less accessibly Top 40 radio-friendly shift in sound for the usually pop-oriented diva (especially considering her latest hit), although her capable chops allow her to be a sonic chameleon and get into slinkier sounds. And who better to do it with than The Purple One?
While Prince teased a track based on the #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin meme on Twitter, it (sadly) doesn’t sound like this is the one. And, lucky for us, there are plenty more collaborations still to come: According to Rap-Up, there’s an “aggressive” rap song in the mix too. Exciting! (Maybe.)
