"Soft and Wet" is a song performed by American musician Prince. It was his first solo single, released in June 7, 1978 on his 20th birthday, from his debut album, For You. The track contains drums, bass guitar and synthesizers. The lyrics were cowritten by Chris Moon, the producer-songwriter-engineer who discovered Prince in Minneapolis. The song peaked at 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 25, 1978, after two weeks on the chart.

MC Hammer sampled "Soft and Wet" in "She's Soft and Wet," from the album Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em, while R&B singer N'dambi covered the song for her 2005 album A Weird Kind of Wonderful (it appears on the Japan-only issue of said album).

In a scene from the 2000 film Unbreakable, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, Robin Wright's character, Audrey, mentions to her husband, David (Bruce Willis), that her favorite song is "Soft and Wet".[1]

In the Japanese manga series, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 8 JoJolion, Josuke Higashikata's stand "Soft & Wet" is named after the song.
