I Wanna Be Your Lover is a Prince video released for broadcast and to promote the single. It is Prince’s first video to have been broadcast as no videos were made for either of the two previous singles Soft And Wet and Just As Long As We’re Together.
The video shows Prince singing, playing various instruments: keyboards, drums, guitar and bass. He is also seen dancing and playing with a red scarf attached to his mic. The video looks to have been interpreted as a attempt to market Prince as a prodigy multi-instrumentalist (a potential new Stevie Wonder).
The video was included on The Hits Collection in 1993.
Another video was shot with Prince’s band but it was never aired and remains unreleased. The videos are two separate run-throughs of the song and neither contains any shots also present in the other.
