Singles released

The single released from this album didn't contain a Prince contribution:

  • Save Your Sex For Me
Allegiance is the fourth solo studio album by former Shalamar singer Howard Hewett, and was released in November 1992 (on the same day as two singles by Prince and the New Power Generation - 7 and Damn U).

The album contained the title track Allegiance, a track written by Prince (although he did not play on the released version).

Sessions and compiling

Allegiance was recorded by Prince initially in May 1988 and likely updated in early October 1991, but was re-recorded by Howard Hewett between late 1991 and late 1992.


The album produced one single, Save Your Sex For Me. The album did not enter the US Billboard Pop Chart, and reached only number 73 on the Billboard R&B Chart.
