5 Prince Songs That Were Hits for Women Artists

It's devastating news that Prince is gone. Another genius taken too soon.

Amid all the tributes to Prince's brilliance, and the lists of his amazing songs, there's a common theme: Prince was so prolific that his songs couldn't be contained in his own recordings. They spilled over to many other artists who had hits with them.



But there's also another pattern: many of his best songs by other artists were actually by female artists. In hindsight it makes sense: Prince loved women.

Of course he had some great songs recorded by men, like Morris Day and the Time's "Jungle Love." But his real gift was writing songs for women. 

Here are 5 Prince songs made into hits by women artists:

1. Chaka Khan, I Feel For You




2. Sinead O'Connor, Nothing Compares 2 U




3. Sheila E., The Glamorous Life



4. The Bangles, Manic Monday



5. Stevie Nicks, Stand Back



There will never be another Prince. RIP.

    " Stand Back" is a song I never tire of. Only recently did I learn it was a Prince composition. Just deepens my respect for him and for Stevie Nicks. Another great Prince song which doesn't t get nearly enough credit is " Hey Mr. How's Your Daughter" recorded by Patti Labelle. Prince sings background on the record and I think it's one of his grittiest, funkiest, and most socially relevant songs.
