Female Trouble is the fifth solo album by singer Nona Hendryx (formerly part of pop/soul group LaBelle, along with Patti LaBelle), and was released on 17 April 1987.

The album contains Baby Go-Go, written by Prince (under the name Joey Coco). The track was re-recorded for the album, however, and contains no musical input by Prince.

The album featured contributions from George Clinton and Mavis Staples (both on Baby Go-Go), both of whom would later work directly with Prince, as well as Jellybean Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis. It also featured contributions from Peter Gabriel and Bernie Worrell, marking their first (and only for Peter Gabriel) appearance on a Prince-related release, albeit not on a Prince-related track.


Promotion

The album produced three singles, Why Should I Cry?, Baby Go-Go and Winds Of Change (Mandela To Mandela).
