Yep..wine glass in one hand and beating the hell out of my countertop. I remember her sexxy outfits. Get it gyrl!!!!
Yes b**ch!!!
Great song!
She's in love with material and status not imperfect immortals. She's probably a baby mom that needs the support without the man? Typical American woman go figure
I always wanted to play the drums being led by pioneer men but when i heard Sheila e play i knew then i will be beating the crap out of some drums. This lady can play better than she can sing. Just my opinion.
Love this song.I love the way she ply those drums she's bad!!!!

Bad Bad BAND Banging those 1 & 2's
Another amazing song written and produced by Prince. Love u Sheila. The horns and drums are amazing on this song.
I'm a fan of this 9 minute version.
Love love!! She killing it!! Always has!
Real musicians forged the rock/pop genres. But the business men have completely taken it over. Lot of great music from the 80's
This is the knock!
My jam!!
"W/o <3 it ain't MUCH!!" - love it #she rocks

Ms. E. Beatin the HELL out those drums
Dope song. One of my favorites
Sexy momma
It bring back a lot of memories
I've been down with Sheila E and Prince from day one I like when she says they made haste in the brown sedan they head to 55 on the Easy Street she's talking about the brown Mercedes nobody can play those precautions as a lady like Sheila E
i never paid any attention to the lyrics of this song... except the part about big thoughts big dreams... without love - it ain't much. .. real. ! classic beat.. melody...
Im swaying side to side like Shelia E in the video and playing my air drums...
