The Juice, registered at ASCAP as simply Juice is an unreleased song by Carmen Electra, recorded on 10 July 1991 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota), with saxophone and flute overdubs by Eric Leeds recorded the same day. It was included as a CD-only (hidden) bonus track, the 14th and final track, on a 15 June 1992 configuration of her album, then titled On Top (with the artist credit "Carmen"). The song was ultimately rejected from the album, however, and the album was renamed Carmen Electra. It is registered at ASCAP as written by Carmen, Rosie Gaines & Levi Seacer, Jr., although Prince is thought to have had a hand in the writing too and was likely produced by Prince, who also played most of the instruments. The song contains a sample of James Brown saying "turn it up" (the origin of this sample is unknown, however). In mid-September 1993, the song was tried out during early sessions for Mayte’s first album Child Of The Sun, also at Paisley Park Studios, although the song may have been used only to determine appropriate song styles for Mayte; details of her version are not known. While the song is regarded unreleased, a 40 second snippet was in fact included in NPG Ahdio Show 1.
