Contribution is the second studio album by British soul singer Mica Paris, and was released in October 1990 in the UK and in February 1991 in the USA (on the same day as Times Squared by Eric Leeds, also featuring musical input by Prince).

The album contained one track written by Prince, If I Love U 2 Nite, although the album didn't contain any musical input by Prince, as the track was re-recorded by Paris' musicians (Prince later worked on a different version of the track with Mayte).

Prince originally sent Mica Paris a cassette containing four songs to choose from for the album, but Paris chose only to record If I Love U 2 Nite (other songs titles included on the cassette are unknown).


Promotion

The album produced three singles, Contribution, South Of The River and If I Love U 2 Nite. The album did not enter the US Billboard Pop Chart, but reached number 58 on the Billboard R&B Chart. In her native country of the UK, the album reached number 26 on the Gallup Top 40 Album Chart.
