The "Girl Meets Boy" single was the first thing that popped out of Sheila E. after Prince's death, and it came quickly. "My way of expressing myself is to go into the studio and just let things happen," she says. "So I started writing: It was like at one in the morning and my guitar player was there, and about an hour later the song was done and I started doing the vocal at 2:30 in the morning. (The song) was based on (Prince) and I meeting each other and I was a girl and he was a boy, 'cause it was 1978, a very long time ago. So that whole process and how he had left...It was devastating."
