Don’t Talk 2 Strangers was the first and only commercial single from Chaka Khan’s first and only NPG Records album Come 2 My House. The single was released in the UK only in late 1998, prior to the album’s release in the UK (following her performance of Don’t Talk 2 Strangers on the Beautiful Strange TV special).

It contained the album versions of Don’t Talk 2 Strangers (written, produced and largely performed by produced by Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png)) and Spoon (on which produced by Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) is believed to appear as a musician), as well as Tour The House, which includes clips of several tracks from Come 2 My House. The track (otherwise only found on the US version of a single for Spoon), does not include any unique instrumentation or lyrics, restricted instead to song clips edited into each other (similar to the track X-cerpts From The Songs: Thunder, Daddy Pop, Strollin’, Jughead, Money Don’t Matter 2 Night, Push, Live 4 Love from the Diamonds And Pearls single). It includes edited clips taken from various tracks on the album: This Crazy Life Of Mine (1:10), Pop My Clutch (0:39), Don’t Talk 2 Strangers (1:11), Democrazy (1:28) and EyeBlue.png Remember U (0:55), book-ended with the sound effects of doors opening and closing. See specific tracks for recording information and recording personnel.

A few months after the initial release, a promotional single was sent out to tie-in with the title track’s appearance in the Maya Angelou movie Down In The Delta (it also appeared on the movie’s soundtrack album).

The single did not enter the charts.
