Not long after the tragic passing of a major musical icon, unreleased vocal takes were found in his vault at Paisley Park Studios. "Mama Why" came from a jam session during the Purple Rain period which didn't even make it to a finished song. This demo got into the hands of Greg Campbell through an industry associate of his working on a remastering session at Paisley Park.

'I was able to have fun with this and create an arrangement out of three different vocal parts and a hook, while writing a tight grooved bassline melody backed with Chicago house style shuffled drums".

The Ne.Hau remix provides a nice contrast to the original by bringing a bouncier, more playful energy. The Pitched down rendition of the vocal keeps the vibe dramatic, giving the track a nice duality which is very much an on brand depiction of the Ne.Hau sound.
