Private Joy - La Toya Jackson

Private Joy

Heart Don't Lie
pop 80s female vocalists dance-pop funk


American singer La Toya Jackson covered this song for her 1984 album Heart Don't Lie. Her single had limited release in Japan as a 7" single. Her U.S. hit single "Heart Don't Lie" can be found on the B-side. According to Jackson, Prince's publishing company, Controversy Music, "approached me about recording songs of his that hadn't gone over too big the first time around. They submitted several songs and I picked 'Private Joy' because it sounded so up-to-date." Though "Private Joy" was Jackson's favorite song from Heart Don't Lie, it was never released as a single outside Japan. Said Jackson at the time, "I loved the song and my record company loved it, but my father manages me and it was his decision to not release that cut." The Los Angeles Times stated that "note for note, she matches Prince's intensity with her own hard-edged snap, crackle and pop."


African-US American R&B and pop singer La Toya Jackson (born La Toya Yvonne Jackson, May 29, 1956 in Gary, Indiana) is the fifth child of the hugely successful Jackson music family. She is the older sister of Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson. La Toya Jackson was the first female sibling of the Jackson family to pursue a solo musical career.

My little secret, my private joy
Who could never let another play with his toy
You're my little sweetheart from heaven above
Oh, oh oh oh oh I think I'm falling in love
