Prince Projects 1: Vanity6


Vanity6 is a girl group assembled by the rising star himself Prince back in 1981. Vanity Six’s “nasty girls” image was introduced to music fans as the female counter-part to Prince’s “rude boy’ image.  Vanity6s’ personas were as followed;  Denise “Vanity” Matthew’s role was lead singer while her persona was that of the sexy vamp clad in a black leather camisole and trench coat, whereas, Susan Moonsie persona was the innocent shy female holding a teddy bear and wearing white camisole, while, Brenda Bennett persona was that of the smoking tough chick she wore a blue camisole with studded belts strapped around her waist.

Vanity6 only recorded one album, which was simply called Vanity6, however for diehards and/or curious minds, there are tracks floating around that were recorded for a sophomore album which unfortunately never occurred, due to Vanity departing the group for a solo career. Unreleased songs include: “Sex Shooter” (original version), and “Vibrator”.

In my collection, from left to right, there is the Vanity6 album, the 12″ remixed single for “Drive Me Wild” and the. extended version of “He’s So Dull”.
