Skip 2 My U My Darling is the ninth track on the 1991 French release of Jevetta Steele’s first solo album Here It Is (Jevetta Steele is also part of the group The Steeles). The song was removed from the 1993 worldwide reissue, for unknown reasons. Prince wrote the track, but did not appear on the version as released in 1991.

Prince's original track started life as Skip 2 My U, tracked on 10 December 1990, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. His version was released in October 2023 as the eleventh track of Vault Tracks part 2, one of the discs with previously unreleased tracks included with the Diamonds And Pearls Super Deluxe Edition. Oddly, Prince’s version used the title Skip To My You My Darling, while Steele's version was released under the title Skip 2 My U My Darling (using Prince’s usual shorthand spelling).
