Prince’s new song Valentina is raising eyebrows with its lyrics—lyrics that seem to be about voluptuous (and newly married) actress Salma Hayek. Hayek’s young daughter is named Valentina, and in the song, Prince seems to hint that he has a thing for her Mom.

The song includes this snippet: "Hey Valentina, tell your mama she should give me a call/ When she get tired of runnin' after you down the hall/And she's all worn out from those late-night feedings/and she's ready for another rock and roll meeting.”

The track is on Prince’s new 3-CD set Lotus Flower. (A rep for the singer was unavailable to comment on whether the tune is really an ode to the Latin beauty.)
