This entry details a video for the song 18 & Over. The videos for 18 & Over, Zannalee and Empty Room (shot in late 1994, around the same time as the videos for The Same December and I Like It There) were completed by Prince (then ) and date-stamped on December 22nd 1994. At the time, all three tracks were unreleased: Zannalee was later released on Chaos And Disorder (in 1996), 18 & Over on Crystal Ball (in 1998) and a live version of Empty Room was included on C-Note (in 2004). The three videos were premiered on the The Ultimate Live Experience Tour in March 1995, when they were screened prior to the concerts along with video clips of The Same December, The NPG’s Get Wild and Mayte’s If ♥ U 2night. The three videos were also shown at The New Power Generation Stores in Minneapolis and London and at the Glam Slam nightclubs, but they were never released to any television stations. They were also not used in promotion of Chaos And Disorder or Crystal Ball. A single, loosely knit storyline takes place in the three videos, which run for over 10 minutes.

In 18 & Over, the story begins with Morris Hayes and casting the video. Morris sits in on a casting call, admiring line-ups of beautiful women with a cigar in his mauch. Meanwhile, is pictured singing from a bed, reading a giant book named after the song and "auditioning" his two candidates, a set of beautiful girls who look like twins. The storyline is interspersed with footage from The Ross Sisters performing Solid Potato Salad from the comedy/musical movie Broadway Rhythm (1944). Morris continues his search until Mayte arrives in men’s clothing and does a striptease for him. is then seen entering his limousine with the two girls, going to his home where the video for Zannalee takes place.

Some footage from this video were included in the 95 Tour Wallpaper video.
