I Am is the second studio album by Elisa Fiorillo, and was the first and only to feature writing input by Prince. Five of the album's ten tracks were written (or co-written) by Prince, although the album was mostly produced by David Z. Rivkin (Prince produced one track, Ooh This I Need).


Recording progress

Prince's involvement in the album came by chance, as he dropped by Paisley Park Studios while David Z. Rivkin and Levi Seacer, Jr. were recording with Elisa Fiorillo in September 1989, and he liked what he heard. He immediately helped write the track they were working on, I Am, before helping to write On The Way Up. He submitted Playgirl, Love's No Fun and Ooh This I Need in late 1989 and early 1990.


Promotion

The album produced two commercially-available singles, On The Way Up (released shortly before the album) and Oooh This I Need (spelled differently than the album track). The album failed to chart, however.
