If A Girl Answers (Don’t Hang Up) is the fifth track on Vanity 6’s first and only album Vanity 6. The track was co-written, produced and largely performed by Prince (as was the rest of the album). Prince also speaks on the track using his Jamie Starr voice, playing the role of a woman answering the phone and engaging in conversation with Vanity.

While specific recording dates are unknown, basic tracking took place in March or April 1982, at Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced Bite The Beat, He’s So Dull and Nasty Girl).
