Love is the sixth track on Prince’s 31st studio album 3121, and, three months after the album’s release, Love was included as the b-side on UK promotional copies of the album’s third single, Fury (but not included on the commercial single).

On 21 October 2007, an alternate acoustic recording (with overdubs) was streamed on as the website’s second "Jam of the Week".

Exact recording dates are unknown, but it was likely recorded at some point in 2005, at either Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, or 3121 Antelo Rd. in Los Angeles, California.

The repeated drum pattern heard throughout the song was also used for Holla & Shout.

The track was included as the eighth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, before the album underwent some changes before its release. It is unknown if the acoustic version was recorded during the same time period, or was recorded at a later date.
