Prince performed both "I Wanna Be Your Lover" and "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" on American Bandstand on 26 January 1980. Overall, the success of this album geared Prince towards his next album, Dirty Mind, which would be called a complete departure from his earlier sound.

Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" is the US follow-up single to Prince's first big hit, "I Wanna Be Your Lover". It is also Prince's first rock and roll-inspired single release. It did not make the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, although it did reach on the R&B Singles charts. The lyrics explore a relationship with a cruel lover. The song prominently features guitar and bass, with the keyboard featured in a less prominent role

Why you want to treat me so bad When you know I love you? How can you do this to me When you know I care? Why you want to treat me so bad When you know I love you? You know, I try so hard To keep you satisfied Sometimes you play the part Sometimes you’re so full of pride And if it’s still good to ya Why you want to treat me so bad? You used to love it when I’d do you You used to say I was the best you’d ever had. I play the fool when we’re together I give you everything I can, yeah And if it’s still good to ya There’s something that I can’t understand. Why you want to treat me so bad When you.

Expanding the urban R&B and funk approach of his debut, Prince is a considerably more accomplished record than his first effort, featuring the first signs of his adventurous, sexy signature sound. Although the album is still rather uneven, a handful of songs rank as classics.
