Jill Jones "Mia Bocca"

One of Prince's more underrated proteges. She was the platinum blonde in Purple Rain and in the 1999 video. Jill sung back up on many songs for The Purple One, and went on to release an album under his Paisley Park label.

*Stunning* video from an artist *decades* ahead of her time. Even as an MTV "Buzz Bin" act, she stood above the acts in regular rotation and should have been massive. Alas back then, like now, the quality and "different" acts get mowed down by the trite and generic.

I agree, R1. This clip, BOOM BOOM, further showcased her talents. It was supposed to be on her second Paisley Park album, but the project was shelved.

Thank you for posting this. I loved the song and had forgotten the singer's name.
