A Woman’s Gotta Have It by Nona Gaye, a cover of the Bobby Womack song Woman’s Gotta Have It (from his 1972 album Understanding, and also released as a single) is the tenth track on the album 1-800 New Funk (a compilation of mostly-unreleased music largely written and produced by Prince/SymbolSmallerBlue.png, recorded by other Paisley Park Records artists).

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely the track was recorded between Summer 1993, and Spring 1994, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. It is not known if the song was intended for any other project prior to its inclusion on 1-800 New Funk.
