She told the BBC:

Prince actually was working on the album with me before he passed on to another frequency, and helped me come up with sounds. I really miss him, its hard for me to talk about him.

In her interview with The Guardian, Janelle talked about the impact Prince had on her career:

I wouldnt be as comfortable with who I am if it had not been for Prince. I mean, my label Wondaland would not exist without Paisley Park coming before us.
