Cream (4:12)

Cover of The very best of

From The very best of and 14 other releases

“Cream” is a song by Prince and The New Power Generation, from the 1991 album, Diamonds and Pearls. Prince states that he wrote the song while standing in front of a mirror.

The single’s B-side, “Horny Pony”, a rap-pop song which was replaced on Diamonds and Pearls at the last minute by “Gett Off”, was re-used from the “Gett Off” single. “Cream” was also released as a maxi-single EP with remixes and songs/raps loosely based on “Cream”. The EP was notable for including several prank telephone conversations.

In the UK, “Gangster Glam” was an additional B-side on the 12”/CD maxi single. In Japan, an EP was released with the tracks from the U.S. maxi single, and four tracks from the U.S. “Gett Off” maxi single.

“Cream” was a #1 hit stateside, and it made the Top 20 in the U.K. It was very well received at American radio—peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 Airplay, this was Prince’s fifth and currently last #1 hit in the U.S.— however, it did not make the R&B singles chart, because the track was not sent to Urban radio; “Insatiable” was sent to Urban instead.
