Boom, Boom (Can't U Feel The Beat Of My Heart) is an unreleased song recorded in Summer 1982 at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with several other tracks that would re-appear over the next several years). somewhere in 1986 Prince revamped, recording Jill Jones vocals on it for possibly use on the Jill Jones album. It was placed on a November '86 configuration of that album as fifth track following Rough and segueing into My Man, but (with Rough) was left off the final configuration.

In the summer of 1989 the track was revamped completely with new instrumentation and Jill Jones re-cutting her vocals at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, for possible use on the proposed second album by Jill Jones (along with My Baby Knows, from the same sessions, and Flesh And Blood and Am I Without U?). A video clip was produced for the song at this point, indicating that it may have been intended as the first single from the album, but the album was not completed, as Prince and Jill Jones disagreed on the direction of the album, with Jill Jones wanting to sing more mature songs than Prince was providing.
