2020 is an unreleased song recorded in the first half of 1995 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. It was included as the seventh track on the 1995 New World album project, a precursor to what became the album Emancipation and subsequently as the fifth track on a July 1995, configuration of Emancipation, as well as on another 1995 configuration. The track was removed as the album underwent many changes, however, and remains unreleased.

The opening lyrics of the song ("The year is 2020. And in the club - Love4OneAnother. Students dance to the heartbeat of the drum") are featured in the booklet of Emancipation to describe the track The Human Body.
