One of my (The Analytical Economist) favorite bits of information about Prince that emerged following his death Thursday is that back in 1990 he wrote a song about a future presidential candidate.
The slow jam, titled “Donald Trump (Black Version)” appeared on The Time’s last album Pandemonium.
Give it a listen below:
To quote a brief sampling of the lyrics:
“Donald Trump (black version), maybe that’s what you need.
A man that fulfills your every wish, your every dream.
Donald Trump (black version), come on take a chance.
A 1990s love affair, the real romance.”
You may recall Prince also wrote and sung advice to a sitting president, Ronald Reagan, back in the day.
Trump sent out a kind Tweet following the news of Prince’s death,.
I met Prince on numerous occasions. He was an amazing talent and wonderful guy. He will be greatly missed!

He may have made no mention of the song , but I’m sure he thinks it’s the best song.
