"Peach" is a 12-bar blues song by American musician Prince from his 1993 compilations, The Hits 2 and The Hits/The B-Sides.

The female moan heard on the track is that of American actress Kim Basinger.[1] The B-side was the live version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" in the U.S., while the UK backed the song with an edit of "My Name Is Prince". In addition, the UK issued two CD singles for "Peach", each backed by hits not on the collection. The first disc contained "Peach", "Mountains", "Partyman", and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night". The second disc contained "Peach", along with "I Wish U Heaven", "Girls & Boys", and "My Name Is Prince". The second disc was sold in a special fold-out collector's case with a place holder for the first disc, which was sold separately. Prince performed the song live during his 1993 tour.
