"Me and Prince were auditioning together, and I blew Prince out of the water," Snipes explained. "Michael had told Prince that he had the role, and then he met me."
Prince, on the other hand, did not seem to recall it going down the same way. In a 1997 interview with VH1 the icon stated, "The first line in that song is, 'your butt is mine' so I was saying, 'Who gon' sing that to whom? Because you sure ain't singing it to me, and I sure ain't singing it to you.' So right there we got a problem."
