Plus Housequake, U got the look, if I was your girlfriend and Strange relationship saw Prince taking on a female persona known as Camilla (He planned to do an album of his female alter ego, but Warner Bros. Balked at the idea, stating that there was no way they could market an album of an alter ego.) He planned on having just the eyes showing with no mention of Prince or Camila 


The voice of Camila was technically Prince, Himself, But he does up his voice in the mixing Process to give it this female sounds. 

So who's ready to explore the artist at his most best.
