La, La, La Means Eye.png Love U, a cover version of the song by The Delfonics (originally titled La-La Means I Love You, from their 1968 debut album La La Means I Love You) is the fifth track on the third disc of Prince's 19th album Emancipation, the third album to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place between April-May 1995, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. It features American jazz/R&B singer Chanté Moore on background vocals (indicating that it may have been recorded in the same set of sessions as Journey 2 The Center Of Your Heart, on which she also appears), marking the only released track by SymbolSmallerBlue.png to feature her (she is also mentioned in the lyrics of Ripopgodazippa and appears on Chaka Khan's released version of Journey 2 The Center Of Your Heart, however). It also contains a fill from the original version of the song by The Delfonics. The track was performed regularly on the One Nite Alone... Tour, but, along with other cover tracks performed, was not included on the One Nite Alone... Live! release documenting the tour (replaced by Extraordinary, which was performed only rarely).
