The Daily Mail reports;
Since his death on Thursday, numerous stories are emerging about the life and legacy of Prince.
We know that the iconic artist was a prolific writer for other musicians, penning songs including Sinead O’Connor’s biggest hit Nothing Compares 2 U, often under pseudonyms.
But a little known fact is he once wrote a romantic ballad about… Donald Trump.
The seductive song, recorded by R&B group The Time for their 1990 album Pandemonium, is called ‘Donald Trump (Black Version).’
The band, now known as The Original 7ven, was formed by Prince in 1981 in Minneapolis under a clause in his Warner bros contract that allowed him to recruit and work with other artists for the label.
Prince’s biographer Matt Thorne wrote that the song had originally been written for The Time’s unreleased album Corporate World, according to Buzzfeed.
However, the album ultimately became Pandemonium and features five songs written by Prince. it was recorded through his label, Paisley Park Records, and distributed by Warner Bros.
And according to a 1990 review of the record in the Sun-Sentinel, he took no credit whatsoever for the work.
Honey baby, you truly know it. You truly know it.
You look good. Tryin’ your best to show it.
If I were you, I would. True love and affection.
These are nice, so nice but when a money man walks in the room, girl, you look more than twice.
You look once, you look twice. Can I rap to you sugar tonight?
Donald Trump (black version), maybe that’s what you need.
A man that fulfills your every wish, your every dream.
Donald Trump (black version), come on take a chance.
A 1990’s love affair, the real romance.
Honey baby, you are the finest. I have seen.
And your disposition’s so kind you’re never mean.
Girl, you’re to good to be true. But last night when you were asleep, you slipped big time.
I heard you. You said your favorite color was green.
So guess what?
Now look here baby. I ain’t tryin’ to be 90 proof.
But a super strong woman. She needs a super strong dude.
Sweet words of love are helpful.
But what goes a lot farther than that?
A hundred dollar dinner at Adriano’s?
A brand new coat or a brand new hat?Yes, I can do this!
… Donald Trump (black version), maybe that’s what you need.
Come on, come on take a chance.
…. A man that fulfills your every wish, your every dream.
I can fill your every dream, baby.

…. Maybe that’s what you need.
’cause I want all the other girls to bug.
…. A man that fulfills your every wish.
My name is Morris, baby.

And I dig you. And when I dig somebody.
