In the summer of 1995, Boy George released his fifth studio album Cheapness and Beauty. Though only a moderate commercial success, the album was an important one in his career because it marked the first time he sang very openly about being gay, despite having come out publicly to Barbara Walters a decade earlier.

The lead single was a cover version of Iggy Pop and David Bowie’s 1977 bop “Funtime.” For the second single, Boy George released “Il Adore.” Originally titled “Stevie,” he wrote the song following the death of his childhood friend, who passed away from an AIDS-related illness.
