Sheila E.

Before she became a solo artist in 1984, drummer Sheila E. played with Azteca, the Latin jazz-fusion band led by her father, percussionist Pete Escovedo; she also played on two of his solo albums recorded for Fantasy Records. Prince discovered Sheila E. around 1983 and had her sing on "Erotic City," the B-side to his number one 1984 single, "Let's Go Crazy." Prince also helped her secure a record contract with Warner Bros.; she released her debut album, Sheila E. in the Glamorous Life, in 1984. Written by Prince, the title track hit the U.S. Top Ten and her second single, "The Belle of St. Mark," charted in both the American and British Top 40. The following year she released Sheila E. in Romance 1600, which featured the number 11 hit "A Love Bizarre." Her self-titled album was released in 1987, yet it didn't have the commercial impact of her two previous records. Sheila E. joined Prince's band for the 1987 Sign O' the Times tour and is featured prominently in the resulting film documentary of the same name. Four years later, she returned with her fourth album, Sex Cymbal. Despite it's heavy dance beats and vivacious compositions, Sex Cymbal failed to chart. After her brief stint ringleading the band on Magic Johnson's late-night show, The Magic Hour, Sheila E. returned to recording and released The Writes of Passage in fall 2000. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

IHEART has a Prince Tribute Station. I guess we should be listening to them more. This station is playing people who Prince introduced or played with, or just has similar music. I switched over here thinking I would hear mainly his songs, too. I still like Pandora, but it does have it flaws. (so do I)

No Prince played on this station in the days after his passing. Makes me even sadder��

These type of apps/sites require a certain licensing. I have been a member of Rhapsody for probably 10 years and you won't see a lot of Prince songs and a handful of other artists. Maybe a couple and they are rarely the faves. So, some artists you actually need to buy the album.

Some of us ARE paying for this music! I pay for this app, thank you. Evidently you don't. So I guess the shame is on you. And I would pay more if it made more artists available. I have no problem with that.

You won't ever hear prince.
He stood for what was right. So that includes paying for his music.

What a team Prince and Sheila E was! It's like whoever he produced, they were awesome! What a musical and guitar playing genius he was! I don't think many people realized how awesome a guitar player he was. When he played solo on My Guitar Gently Weeps on the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, it raised goose bumps on my arms. You have to Google it and have a listen!
