Turn It Up is a song recorded on 19 January 1982 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (the day after Wild And Loose, and eight days before resuming the Controversy Tour). The song was planned for inclusion on 1999, but was removed when Prince recorded Delirious, which Prince viewed as a similar track. Mixes were made where the song fades out and another portion starts back up as a reprise, but the song was originally created as a single track.

The song was released in 2019 as the ninth track on the Vault Tracks part 1 disc of a Super Deluxe edition of the 1999 album.

  • The released mix of this track was done by Nick Bolas specifically for the 1999 Super Deluxe release. It was made to replicate the original mix from the time the song was initially tracked, as much as possible. So even when a slightly different mix of this track might exist, the now released version is not considered a true alternate mix of the track.
