Earlier this month, it was announced that there will be a special Prince tribute during the BET Awards featuring Sheila E., the Roots and more.

And now comes word from Billboard that the day following the awards show, which takes place June 26, Sheila E. will be releasing a brand new single which is inspired by Prince entitled, “Girl Meets Boy.”

Earlier this year Sheila E. was working on a new project and was scheduled to release a new single from it in April, until the death of her former close friend and finance, Prince.

“It just wasn’t the music I wanted out right now,” she told Billboard.  “It’s not how I’m feeling; everything has changed.  So a couple weeks ago, I decided to write a whole new album.  And it feels right.”

The new album she’s referring to will feature music influenced by her relationship with Prince, and will be titled after the main single, “Girl Meets Boy.”  The music will be a mix of both uptempo songs and ballads.

What a wonderful way for Sheila E. to show respect to someone who was such an important part of her life.
