Eye.png Love U, But Eye.png Don’t Trust U Anymore is the 13th track (eleventh song) on Prince's 23rd album Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic (his sixth using the name SymbolSmallerBlue.png). In 2001, it was included as the tenth track on the companion album Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic.

Initial tracking dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded in Spring 1999 during sessions for the album; independent singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco recorded her guitar part at Paisley Park Studios following her concert in Minneapolis on 3 June 1999 (during the same session Maceo Parker recorded his saxophone part for Prettyman). Prince returned the favor to DiFranco by playing guitar on her track Providence.
