18 & Over is the fifth track on the third and final disc of Prince’s 20th album Crystal Ball (his fourth using the name ).
Specific recording dates are not known, but basic tracking took place in Summer 1994 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track began life as a remix of Come and contains looped samples from that song, but it should be regarded as a track in its own right. It was initially intended for a planned Come EP, but this release was abandoned. It was also placed on an unreleased Playtime By Versace project in mid-1995. A video for the track, using a slightly shorter version of the track, was shown regularly before The Ultimate Live Experience shows in March 1995 (see 18 & Over for details).
18 & Over was reworked in May 1995 as an instrumental version for the aborted third Madhouse album, 24. This version remains unreleased.
The first verse of 18 & Over was later reused for the remix of X-tended Rap Money Mix of Face Down.
