I Feel For You is the eighth track on Prince's second album Prince. Prince did not release it as a single at the time, but four years later it became a worldwide hit when performed by soul singer Chaka Khan (with whom Prince would work many years later).

In 1993, the track was included as the fourth track on Prince's first compilation album The Hits 1 (also included as the first disc of The Hits / The B-Sides).

In 2019 an acoustic demo version from late 1978 or early 1979, with just Prince accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, was released as a stand alone track to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Prince album, to be released in 2020 as a limited-run 'made-to-order' 7" purple vinyl single, with orders taken for seven days from 18 October 2019.

An early more fleshed out version of the song was recorded on 17 February 1979 at Music Farm Studios in New York, NY, USA, during a day of sessions led by Pepé Willie intended for Tony Silvester, leader of the group The Main Ingredient to use as demos for Little Anthony and the Imperials, who he wanted to produce (the one-day session also produced One Man Jam, If You Feel Like Dancin', Thrill You Or Kill You, With You and André Cymone's original version of Do Me, Baby).

While specific recording dates for the album version are not known, the album sessions took place from late April to late May 1979 at Alpha Studios in Burbank, California. Overdubs and mixing took place at Hollywood Sound Recorders in Los Angeles, California.
