Denise Matthews was the lead singer and protégée of Prince, female band, Vanity 6.
Matthews along with Vanity 6 was known for their sexually explicit lyrics and style. Even though the group only released one album, their music left ever lasting impression on fans for decades.
Nasty Girl, is one of my favorite songs from Vanity, don’t ask why lol.
Unfortunately, Matthews drug use of crack cocaine while she was a performer caused sever kidney failure, which led to her undergoing dialysis treatment five times a day.
Matthews, passed away in Fremont, CA at the age of 57.
She will forever be remember for her beauty, music and charismatic personality.
