Had U is the eleventh and final track on Prince’s 18th album Chaos And Disorder (his second to be released using the name SymbolSmallerBlue.png), and, one month prior to the album’s release, was included as the b-side of Dinner With Delores, released as a single in the UK, Germany and Japan.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in February or March 1996, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced Into The Light, I Will, Sarah and I Rock, Therefore I Am) or at South Beach Studios,Miami Beach, Florida.

It is commonly believed that the song’s placement as the final song on his final newly-recorded album for Warner Bros. was an intentional parallel to the use of For You as the first song on his first Warner Bros. album For You, accentuated by the song’s length and its tone. Prince himself has never confirmed this, however.
