  • Congratulations Ann & Jack!
  • Finally got my copy of this book. It’s filled with many anecdotes taken from the people around Prince over the years. I’m happy to be included a few times myself, being quoted about some songs. Interesting read.
  • Flashback to a pic of our Rhapsody ❤️😻
  • Thank you @prince for the shout out! The Xpectation album cover and package was fun to create. My only direction was to “Make it look like Jazz.” I don’t remember how we landed on using the definitions as part of the art, but fun fact, the album was originally titled Xenophobia. So when Prince changed it to Xpectation, I had to change all the headlines and definitions on the cover art from Xenophobia to Xpectation 😄
