Glam Slam is the fourth song on Prince's tenth album Lovesexy, and, two months after the album's release, Glam Slam was released as the album's second single. It was not included on the The B-Sides compilation, but was instead included as a b-side on the European single Pink Cashmere and its UK counterpart single, Controversy.

Basic tracking took place in December 1987 at Paisley Park Studios. Glam Slam became a term used on Prince's clothing during the 1988-9 Lovesexy Tour, and was also the name given to Glam Slam nightclubs in Minneapolis, Tokyo, Miami Beach and Los Angeles in the early 1990s. Prince later used the term also for the 'Glam Slam VIP' virtual nightclub on the NPG Music Club, where dance tracks by Prince were streamed during weekends in May 2003.
