Boyfriend was first available for download from Prince's 3rdEyeGirl.com website on 15 February, 2013; the track was initially only available briefly, before being taken down. it returned an hour later, now as Boyfriend Demo.

Blogger Dr. Funkenberry, tweeted that a longer version would be available in the future, but this has not been confirmed and could simply be speculation, although the "demo" addendum to the title suggests the existence of another version. He later reported in an online video chat that three versions of the song exist, of which the release version was the second.

It is unknown if this song is also planned for inclusion on an album or any other project.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.
