Boom, Boom (Can’t U Feel The Beat Of My Heart) is a song by Jill Jones streamed as a video only in the 'Cyberclips' room of the NPG Music Club beginning 12 May 2006 (on the same day as the Fury video). No audio-only version of the track has been released.

The song was initially song recorded in Summer 1982 at Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with several other tracks that would re-appear over the next several years). It was the first song Prince asked Jill Jones worked on, and he had her do a lead vocal on it.

The song was then shelved, but in November ’86 it was placed on an early configuration of the Jill Jones album, as the fifth track (following Rough and segueing into My Man), but it was left off the final configuration of the album.

In late 1987 / early 1988, Prince offered the track to Princess Stéphanie of Monaco who had a singing career at that time. She re-recorded the song in Los Angeles, California, most likely without Prince. Her version of Boom, Boom (Can’t U Feel The Beat Of My Heart) (or simply titled Boom, Boom) was announced in 1988 as the first single to be released from her second album but the whole project was canceled for unknown reason. Her version remains unreleased.

In the summer of 1989 the track was revamped completely with new instrumentation and Jill Jones re-cutting her vocals at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, for possible use on the proposed second album by Jill Jones (along with My Baby Knows, from the same sessions, Flesh And Blood and possibly Am I Without U?). The video clip produced for the song at this point, indicates that it may have been intended as the first single from the album. The project was abandoned as Prince and Jill Jones disagreed on the direction of the album, with Jill Jones wanting to sing more mature songs than Prince was providing.
