Ain’t About 2 Stop is the third track on Prince’s 38th album Hitnrun Phase One. The track is a collaboration between Prince, Joshua Welton and British singer Rita Ora.
Ain’t About 2 Stop was initially planned for inclusion on Rita Ora’s second album (along with Pink Champagne/Champagne Kisses and The Single Most Amazing) originally due in September 2014, then postponed to January 2015. The release was postponed several times, then simply canceled following a conflict with her label (Roc Nation). After legal proceedings and signing with Atlantic, Ora was able to release her second album "Phoenix" in 2018 omitting the Prince songs altogether.
A snippet of the track was streamed during the Yahoo! Live album release party for Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum by Joshua Welton from his Macbook Pro in Paisley Park Studios (Studio C), Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with Revelation and X’s Face). The version included on Hitnrun Phase One replaces Rita Ora’s lead vocals with his own and references to coming from "West London" (Rita Ora’s place of origin) are sung by Prince as "North Minne" (Minneapolis).
While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in late 2013 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (along with The Single Most Amazing and Pink Champagne/Champagne Kisses) .
