Do U Wanna Rock? is an unreleased track recorded on 1 October 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (the day after Letter 4 Miles, the same day as the release of Prince and the New Power Generation’s album Diamonds And Pearls and the recording of Sweet Baby, and I Pledge Allegiance To Your Love, and two days before recording The Thunder Ballet).

The track was intended for a ‘solo’ New Power Generation project, and was at one point intended as the opening track of their Gold Nigga album). It was included as the second track on a 1992 configuration of Gold Nigga but it was removed as the album underwent some changes before release. It is not known which other members of the New Power Generation, if any, played on the track. The track does have vocals, but not by Prince. Nothing else is known about the track, and it remains unreleased.
