Take Me To Your Leader (released only as Take Me To Your Leader (Prince Mix)) is the 13th track on Dale Bozzio’s third solo studio album Make Love Not War. The song is co-written by Bozzio and Prince, but no musician or producer credits are given.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking is likely to have taken place in 1991, as suggested by a press release promoting the album. The press release mentions the track was "co-written by Prince by way of telephone and express mail".

The released version is credited as a Prince Mix, suggesting he remixed the track. The track is also given the artist credit of Prince on all digital platforms, however (likely to make Prince’s involvement clear and visible on searches), but no other version of the track is known to exist.

The track’s baseline is sampled from I Got My Mind Made Up (You Can Get It Girl) by Instant Funk, from their 1979 album Instant Funk (also released as a single in 1979), and is played by Instant Funk’s bass guitarist Raymond Earl; I Got My Mind Made Up (You Can Get It Girl) has been played live occasionally by Prince, beginning in 1987, but it is not known if its inclusion here was a result of his input or not.
