Song history[edit]

The single was released worldwide following the release of the album with great expectations. The lead single, "Dr. Beat", also written by Enrique Garcia, had moderate success, and performed especially well on the dance charts. "Prisoner of Love" was unable to follow the success, debuting on the UK Singles Chart at only #98 and failing to chart elsewhere. The single was only released in Europe. In the United States, "I Need a Man" was released as the second single.
