Check The Record is an unreleased song played live on 18 January 2013, Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, MN, USA. A tape photographed in Prince’s vault at Paisley Park Studios has the song listed (as 'The Record), and is dated 10 March 2010, which alludes this is the exact date for the recording. Recording most likely was at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. On the tape it has The Record “track 1 take 2”, and “track 2 take 1”. At some point the song was slated for release on a Welcome 2 America album that remains unreleased. Nothing else is known about the track.

Other tracks on the same tape are Black Muse and 1,000 Light Years From Here (later released as part of Black Muse), as well as a song called seemingly called Wud.
