This track, “Tutu,” is off of a Miles Davis 1986 album of the same name, which Davis originally intended to be a collaboration with Prince. He would ultimately turn to work with bassist Marcus Miller, who would write most of the music on the album, including this song.
The song and album’s titles are in tribute to Desmond Tutu, the influential Anglican bishop.
