Eye.png Wanna Melt With U is the eighth track (seventh 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 mid-July 1992, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (within days of the final Diamonds And Pearls Tour shows in Europe). It was originally planned for the maxi-single of 7, but Prince liked the track, and wanted to include it on the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album. It initially replaced one segue on a late-Summer, 1992, configuration of the album, but to make the album fit on a single CD for release, several of the album's segues were later removed, eliminating some of the story elements of the album.
