Mind Of J is a track recorded in August 2014 by NPG Q, a band consisting of John Blackwell, Marcus Anderson, Andrew Gouché and Xavier Taplin. The song was written by John Blackwell and previously released by his band, the John Blackwell Project, on their album “4Ever Jia” in 2010.

The basis for the new version was recorded live during a show by NPG Q on 10 August 2014 (a.m.) at Paisley Park Studios ('NPGMC Room') in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince added his guitar parts later in August.

This re-recording of Mind Of J was intended for an album by NPG Q. The project was abandoned when John Blackwell left to tour with D’Angelo in October 2014. The version of Mind Of J with Prince’s instrumental and production inputs remains unreleased.
