Although Taja Sevelle had signed to Paisley Park Records when it was formed in 1984, she mainly worked with Warner Bros. executives on the album, and Prince's involvement was minimal; he submitted the songs in late 1986 after Michael Jackson had rejected Wouldn't You Love To Love Me? for his album Bad.

Recording process

Both songs with Prince involvement were not initially designed for Taja Sevelle and had initially been recorded earlier in his career. Wouldn't You Love To Love Me? was first recorded in 1976-1977, before Prince had even recorded his first album For You, and If I Could Get Your Attention was first recorded in May 1986.


The album produced four singles, Love Is Contagious (released shortly before the album), Wouldn't You Love To Love Me?, Popular and Take Me For A Ride.

It failed to chart in the US, but reached number 48 in the UK."

During the 1990s, Sevelle wrote several songs for Warner Music.

Urban Farming

In 2005, Taja founded the non-profit organization Urban Farming. Its mission is "to create an abundance of food for people in need by supporting and encouraging the establishment of gardens on unused land and space while increasing diversity, raising awareness for health and wellness, and inspiring and educating youth, adults and seniors to create an economically sustainable system to uplift communities around the globe."

The organization began by planting 3 gardens of free food in Detroit and there are now over 63,400 gardens in 61 countries around the world that are a part of the Urban Farming Global Food Chain.
