Love 4 1another is the fifth track on Graham Central Station’s eighth studio album GCS 2000. The song was written by Larry Graham, and produced by Larry Graham and Prince (as ), who also appears as a musician. The drum loop on the track, played by Michael B., was sampled directly from Billy Jack Bitch, as was Mayte’s finger cymbals part.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place between November 1997, and January 1998, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, as 'Thy Kingdom Come. The track’s title was changed at some point before release. It contains a repeated sample of "bought a house next to Prince", taken from the Westside Remix of What Can I Do? (also called What Can I Do? (Remix)) by Ice Cube (written by Leon Ware, Arthur Ross, Ice Cube, Mychal-Kaye Simmons and Victor Nathan Taylor, released on a single and included on the 1994 compilation Bootleg & B-Sides), which was also used on other recordings from 1995-7.

The track is completely unrelated to the track New World, which was originally titled Love 4 1 Another. The track is also unrelated to Prince’s website at the time, Love4OneAnother.com.
