I Wanna Be was originally the third track on Loïs Lane's second album Fortune Fairytales (and was also released as a single in the Netherlands), but this version contained no input by Prince. When their third album Precious was released in the USA in 1993 (using the artist credit Loïs L.), a remixed version by Prince (credited as "produced by Prince") was included as the second track. I Wanna Be was written and originally produced by Evert K. Abbing.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely that Prince remixed the track in early 1992 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.
