"Space" is a song by American musician Prince from his 1994 album Come.[1] The B-side of the single is actually the album track. The A-side is the Universal Love Radio Remix of "Space", with completely new lyrics.

In the album version of "Space" Prince sings about being obsessed with a lover and wanting to take their love higher comparing to the likes of space whereas the Universal Love Remix features a rap from Prince at the end which is lyrically similar to his smash hit "When Doves Cry" with a new bridge saying "All the pain that a human has to go through, in a planet that's so bitter and cold / Universal love awaits you, baby all you got to say is that you really, really, really wanna go / And we're outta here".

Chart performance[edit]

While "Space" did not chart on any airplay charts, it did reach #71 on the R&B/R&B/Hip-Hop chart due to single sales. In Australia, "Space" peaked at #91 on the ARIA singles chart.[2]
