Shake! was the fifth and final single to be released from Prince's twelfth album Graffiti Bridge, and, like the song Shake!, the single was credited only to The Time. It was released four and a half months after the album.

Morris Hayes stated in a 1994 interview with Q Magazine that it was while contributing to one of the remixes of Shake! for this release that he was asked by Prince to record with him.

The single also contained a remix of The Latest Fashion, which was also taken from Graffiti Bridge.

This release marks the first appearance by Morris Hayes on a Prince release, therefore, although his contribution is uncredited, and it is unclear on which track he appears.

The single failed to enter the charts.
