Cream (4:12)

Cover of The very best of

From The very best of and 12 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.

This is it, it's time for you to go to the wire
You will hit 'cause you got the burnin' desire
It's your time, you got the horn so why don't you blow it?
