Stephanie Mills covered Prince’s “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore” for her 1983 studio album Merciless. Mills was the first artist to cover “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore” and it made the R&B charts. The Prince interpretation helped the album receive a Grammy Nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance Female. Luther Vandross wrote “My Body” for Merciless and the personnel included Jody Watley and Stevie Wonder but Merciless is most remembered for her Prince song. Stephanie Mills returned to The Wiz for its live television adaptation on ABC in 2015.
