Funky 4 No Reason is an unreleased song thought to have been recorded in Summer 2000 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota. During Prince’s 13 June 2000, Northrop Auditorium, Minneapolis, Minnesota to close the first Prince: A Celebration, he stated that Angie Stone (who was in attendance and sung) had declared the band "funky 4 no reason" and used it as a chant, saying he thought it would make a good album title for Stone’s next album. It’s possible the song was written with her in mind, but this has not been confirmed. The recording date is assumed based on this performance.
The track was not known until a lyric sheet was displayed at the posthumous 2022 edition of the Prince Celebration at Paisley Park Studios. A recording has not been confirmed, but is believed to exist.
