Love 4 One Another is a TV-special aired on 27 January 1996 by VH1. It is loosely based on the story of a young woman called Nikki (played by Corrie Dana) who travels from Texas to Minneapolis to meet her soulmate. The plot is largely the same as that of the The Ryde Dyvine television special from 1992. 'Nikki' wanders around Paisley Park, looking for Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) and does not find him. Her endeavors are interspersed with performances footage of Prince and The NPG, Nona Gaye and stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle. Love 4 One Another concludes with Nikki not finding Prince and realizing she is not his soulmate but rather a just friend. She is seen leaving a room with the word ’slave' written on her cheek.

The performance footage of Prince and The NPG was shot in October 1995 at Paisley Park Studios.

Love 4 One Another was produced in co-operation with VH1 and was preceded by a 20 minute Video Break. In this Video Break, Morris Hayes is shown hacking the VH1 stream when Prince gets bored by the Madonna and Massive Attack video for their Marvin Gaye cover I Want You. After taking Madonna off the air, Prince, Morris and Tommy Barbarella take over VH-1 and play videos for The NPG’s The Good Life and Count The Days, as well as Dolphin and Mayte’s If EyeBlue.png Love U 2night.
