Shockadelica: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 106 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Leslie Ballard joins me to talk about the witchy, raunchy, female empowerment anthem, “Shockadelica,” the B-side to “If I Was Your Girlfriend.” We spend time trying to decipher if Shockadelica is Camille, someone wholly unique, or even human. There’s a lot of pronoun confusion going on in this song, but maybe you just need to lay back and let Shockadelica do her thing.

Check out the Press Rewind discord at and join us in discussing all things Prince.

Press Rewind Podcast can be found @PressRewindPod on Twitter & Instagram. Facebook & YouTube links below.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!
