For Sheila E., the process of making music with Prince was different than what she was seeing in the larger music industry at the time, and she really enjoyed the freedom she had as a musician.
When the two worked on creating new music together they worked as equals. In the span of just a few years, the two recorded hundreds of songs together. Not everything made it out to the public, but it was important to them to spend time creating new sounds together.
