BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990
“The Sex Of It” is a single by American latin pop band Kid Creole And The Coconuts. Released as the first single freom the album Private Waters In The Great Divide. Written and produced by Prince.
Initial tracking took place on July 29, 1987, at Paisley Park Studios, a few weeks after the studios opened for recordings August Darnell (a.k.a. Kid Creole) recorded his own vocals over the basic tracks in late 1989 or early 1990.
The album was completed and scheduled for release when Prince submitted the song in late 1989 (which he had promised when meeting Darnell in Europe during the Lovesexy Tour), and the record company delayed the release to include the song.
“The Sex Of It” peaked at #19 on the US dance chart and #85 R&B. In the UK the single reached #29.
