Jill Jones - Violet Blue - Jill Jones
This chick is another one of Prince’s many lady friends from the 80s. She first showed up in ‘82 during the 1999 era singing backup and molesting Lisa as she played synth. (listen for her in Automatic and Lady Cab Driver)
Then she had a cameo in the Purple Rain movie as the waitress who had a big crush on the Kid the whole movie.
For some reason, Prince didn’t decide to give her a shot at her own album until ‘87 when her self-titled album came out, and I have to say, it’s way better than any Vanity, Apollonia or Sheila E. album.
Highlights of the album are Mia Boca, G. Spot, this song and Baby, You’re a Trip.
Check her out.
