New Music: Sheila E. ‘Girl Meets Boy’

It was an emotionally-fueled performance when Sheila E. hit the stage to celebrate the life of her longtime collaborator and former fiancé, Prince, during the 2016 BET awards.

From the pulsating rhythm of the drums to classic hits and backdrop of purple, Sheila, joined by Mayte Garcia (Prince’s ex-wife), the New Power Generation band and Jerome Benton of The Time, nostalgia collided with entertainment in the most beautiful way.

Following the tear-jerking tribute, the band, along with Sheila E., decided to write a new song inspired by “The Purple One.” While it’s still being worked on, the baddest female to bang out on a drum set released the single, “Girl Meets Boy,” which details the first time she met Prince.
