Girl Bros is a glorious album...

...full of melancholy magic but never fails to leave me feeling uplifted by the end.

Just saying.

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

I Will is a particularly moving song, likewise Bring You Back. As I say, the whole project is steeped in melancholy but has such spirit and courage. It's a terrifically wonderful collection.

"Let's Say" and "I've Got No Strings" nod

And forgive me if this is common knowledge, but is the hidden track "Cold" about Prince?

Do you think? Could be...but wouldn't it be odd to have such a song on what is otherwise a very personal album?

I've always thought "Song About" is such a lament for the end of The Revolution, from Wendy & Lisa.

Pretty sure 'cold' is about Trevor Horn

Around this time, Prince started talking much more with Lisa & Wendy & Susannah etc

and from 1997-1998 he talked a lot about them complimentary in interviews and most likely if Prince's child did not pass away and his marriage not end, 1999 would have been the year Prince & the Revolution came back together and Roadhouse Garden released.
Even in his 1998 video the One he had hidden messages...

Come back my son and rule love Prince and the Revolution

Mayte was Nefertiti and 0+> was Anhkaten so you are my slave

I often put 'All I Wander' on repeat... such a beautiful, haunting song. I love their voices on this track.
