Space was the second single to be commercially released from the album Come, by Prince (although, following Letitgo, Come (actually the track Poem) was released as a promo single in Germany).
It was released two and a half months after the album (only three weeks before "The Black Album" received its eventual release), and received a release in the USA and Japan only.
The album version of the song Space was included only as the b-side of the single, with Space (Universal Love Radio Remix) as the lead track. A maxi-single was released on the same day as the two-track single, containing multiple remixes of Space, all of which contained new input by Prince.
The single reached only number 71 on the US Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.
