When Warner Brothers pushed for the album to have sung vocals in place of the spoken word, Prince abandoned the project. Five of the album's tracks ended up as spoken word with atmospheric music by Prince under his Paisley Park alias, and the remainder were relatively poppy tracks with sung vocals, co-produced by Ingrid with Prince's studio hands Michael Koppelman and Levi Seacer, Jr.. The singles "Hippy Blood", "Heaven Must Be Near", and "Elephant Box" were released as singles (along with club remixes). Chavez also wrote the bulk of Madonna's sultry 1990 hit "Justify My Love" with musician Lenny Kravitz, and received a large out-of-court settlement for not being credited on that single's initial release. In 1992, not long after recording vocals with David Sylvian for the songs "Heartbeat (Tainai Kaiki II)--Returning to the Womb" and "Cloud #9" on Ryuichi Sakamoto's 1991 album Heartbeat, Chavez married David Sylvian, and over the years contributed her trademark breathy vocals to a number of her baritone-voiced husband's releases. During the mid-1990s, Chavez worked with Sylvian and Werbowenko on a second solo album titled Little Girls With 99 Lives. Chavez and Sylvian sent out demos to record labels and close friends, yet could not strike up interest in a deal.
The album would have included tracks entitled "Lighthouse", "Snowfall", "Whose Trip Is This?", "Starred And Dreaming", "Kall/Les Fleurs Du Mal", and "Remembering Julia". Chavez has a son, Tinondre, born circa 1984, who reportedly lived in Atlanta for a time. She also has two younger daughters, Ameera and Isobel, with Sylvian. After living in Atlanta, Albuquerque, and Minneapolis, she was last known to reside with Sylvian in New Hampshire, along with all three of her children. However, the couple announced their intention to divorce in 2005. Ingrid Chavez has no relation to Miami nightclub owner Ingrid Casares, a longtime friend and rumored lover of Madonna.
