Few musicians match the genius and musicianship of Prince Rogers Nelson. He changed the music industry with his funky bass lines and outrageously intriguing lyrics. Prince is well-known for his sexually suggestive lyrics. Tracks like ‘Head,’ ‘Sexuality,’ and ‘Let’s Pretend We’re Married’ seemed to be a slow building foreplay into ‘Darling Nikki.’

In the 1980s, the first verse of ‘Darling Nikki’ incited loud gasps from the prude parent parade, while producing squeals of delight for fans. Tipper Gore was so outraged she used ‘Darling Nikki’ as the inspiration for the crusade to require “Parental Advisory” labels on CD’s. ‘Darling Nikki’ wasn’t the most sexually suggestive Prince track during the 1980’s but it was simply Tipper Gore’s first introduction to the purple one.

Prince used his music to spark controversy, inspire thought-provoking commentary, and preach to the masses.

Y’see I’m the kinda brother that the more u scream the nastier I get.”

Prince had the confidence and nerve to pull back the covers and expose everyone’s deepest desires in plain sight as he croons about being nastier than you ever imagined. His lyrical poetry paired with superior musicianship only secured his legion of lifelong fans. Prince reassured fans that the human condition is universal. He became the voice of those to timid to speak their own truth.

“Horny Toad” was released as the b-side of the single Delirious, the fourth single to be released from Prince’s fifth album 1999, while in the UK, it was released as the b-side of the single Little Red Corvette, the album’s second single.
In 1993, it was included as the fifth track on The B-Sides compilation (included as the third and final disc on The Hits / The B-Sides)
This track is not believed to have been performed live by Prince, although one line, “The more you scream, the nastier I get”, was spoken as an introduction to Let’s Pretend We’re Married during a few shows. ” PrinceVault
