They transformed the brief bluesy track into a unique funk number. After hearing their work on the demo, Prince took the song back, added a guitar break and his trademark falsetto vocals and released the song on his Parade (1986), where it became a No. 1 hit single and Grammy Award winner. Mazarati's background vocals are even kept intact and were credited on the album.
Another song given to Mazarati was an outtake from The Time called "Jerk Out". Their take on the song never made the album, but the track was redone in 1990, once again with The Time and became a No. 1 single. Mazarati's backing vocals were also kept on the released version. The band continued after its association with Prince and signed with Motown Records releasing their second album , Mazarati 2 (1989) , including the singles "The Saga Of A Man" and "The Woman Thang".
This project reflects the music of that era which was directing to the New Jack Swing-genre. Brown Mark and former Klymaxx-founding member Bernadette Cooper both worked as producers on this album. The project experienced little success, and since the distribution of the LP and CD seems to be limited in quantity and exclusively released as a promo in Canada ( before it was withdrawn eventually ) , these original copies are much in demand by collectors.
