Chapter & Verse was streamed as a live performance on 3rd Eye Girl YouTube channel on 20 January 2013 (taken from the show on 17 January 2013 (show 2), Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, MN, USA). It is not certain if the track was meant to be a stand-alone stream or if a version of the track was intended as part of a future project.

Blogger Dr. Funkenberry, who often reported official information about Prince-related items, stated that Chapter & Verse "was a one off, created on the spot... never before rehearsed". It is assumed, therefore, that no studio recording was made prior to its performance.

  • During the track, Prince makes reference to "Shelby making honey". Bandmember Shelby J. runs a honey harvesting company, Bezingy, from her home state of North Carolina.
  • Prince refers to the fictional character Sherlock Holmes and "his smarter brother Puffy", likely a rhyming reference to rapper, producer and executive Sean Combs (also known as Puffy at times).
