Gimme Your Love is a song by Aretha Franklin and James Brown originally included on Through The Storm, the eighth Arista Records album by Aretha Franklin, with no input by Prince, but five months after the album's release, Gimme Your Love was released as the album's third and final single. It contained a remix by Prince (as Paisley Park), which was also included as various edits on different formats of the single. This is the only instance of Prince contributing to both Aretha Franklin and James Brown's work, although he has long admired both artists and covered various songs by them live. The song itself was written by Narada Michael Walden and Jeffrey Cohen, and originally produced by Narada Michael Walden, however.

Recording details for Prince's remix session are not known, but it likely took place in 1989 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.
