So Strong is the fifth song on Dale’s first solo album Riot In English. The track was written, produced, and largely performed by Prince.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in early April 1987 at Prince’s Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced The Latest Fashion, shortly before departing for Europe for Sign O’ The Times Tour rehearsals). Dale’s vocals were overdubbed later in 1987 or in early 1988, but specific recording dates and studio are not known; recording for the album took place at Metropolis Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California; Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California; Conway Recording Studios in Hollywood, California and Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
