Origin: [Cf. F. scandaleux.]
Scandalous is the eighth track on Prince's album Batman and was released as the album's fourth single, five months after the album was released. The music is attributed to Prince and his father, John L. Nelson. A maxi-single was released after the single, titled The Scandalous Sex Suite, which contained a three part 19 minute suite of the song Scandalous, the three parts named The Crime, The Passion and The Rapture. Kim Basinger, who played the character Vicki Vale in Batman, also appeared on the maxi-single. As Prince's final single released in the 1980s, "Scandalous!" reached number five on the U.S R&B singles chart. Due to licensing issues with the Batman franchise, Prince was not allowed to include songs from this album on any compilations. Even on concert T-shirts listing Prince's albums, the Batman title was replaced by the song "Scandalous!".
