Was it like some sort of lowkey dissing or a joke to cover that one song? Sorta like a "a woman should be singing that song not you" type of thing.

Note the song was written for Patrick rushed by Prince...she declined that and
'Wanna be Your Lover'

Millie Jackson reworked I wanna be your lover when she said "I GOT LOTS OF MONEY!!!"...compared to Prince starting off "I ain't Got no MONEY".

Pointer Sisters did a cover in 82.
Robbie Jackson did one for her debut album in 84.

But we all know which version won 2 Grammys..CHAKA CHAK CHAKA KHAN version with the synth bass and drum DMX drum machine.



ALSO FUNNY that Chaka won that Grammy same time as Purple Rain was in rotation.
