Arrogance is the twelfth track (eleventh song) on Prince's 14th album SymbolSmallerBlue.png, the second album to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in early December 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced Sexy M.F., Love 2 The 9's, The Morning Papers, The Sacrifice Of Victor and And God Created Woman). Kirsty Alley's spoken part for the segue included at the end of the album version was recorded in early 1992 at Record Plant in Hollywood, California. The track was included as the 16th track (tenth song) on a March 1992, configuration of the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album, and the 16th track (eleventh song) on a late-Summer 1992, configuration, before many of the album's segues were removed for release.

The song contains samples from I Know You Got Soul, written and performed by Eric B. & Rakim (from Paid In Full 1987, also released as a single), Jazz It Up (Jazz Mix), written and performed by C.F.M. Band (from the single Jazz It Up 1991) and Niggaz 4 Life, written by The D.O.C., Dr. Dre and MC Ren, as performed by N.W.A. (from Niggaz4live 1991).
