Lovesexy is the sixth song on Prince's tenth album Lovesexy. In 1989, a live version was included on the Lovesexy Live 1 VHS, taken from the 9 September 1988 live TV broadcast. Basic tracking took place on 29 January 1988, three days after an acetate of what was to become Lovesexy (including the song Luv Sexy) was produced, and two days before recording I Wish U Heaven. On this day Prince built a new song, using some elements from Luv Sexy, (recorded in December 1987), including the horn/synth hookline, the '"rain is wet sugar is sweet" vocal section and the vari-speed "tonight we make love with only words" dialogue. He then took lyrics originally written as The Most Vital and created Lovesexy, recording all instruments by himself except for the parts lifted from Luv Sexy. The song was included as the sixth track on a February configuration of Lovesexy, where it remained for the final release.
