Pass Or Play: Prince’s New Song “Rock And Roll Love Affair”

November 30, 2012  |  


Personally, I’m surprised to see that Prince is allowing his new video to be posted online. You know how he feels about the internets. (He said he thinks it’s just a fad.) Well, his new song, “Rock and Roll Love Affair,” has a video and thankfully, someone convinced the Purple One it needed to be uploaded. True story, if it had been left up to the networks, where would we see it? On 106 & Park (LOL, I kid.) Maybe Vh1 Soul? Either way, now that’s on the internet, it can get the exposure it deserves.

So check out the official video below. And be sure to take note of Prince’s natural do. This is a big step for a man who at least stayed with a serious press and curl.

Yaasss! If you ask me, the man’s still got it. Isn’t it nice to hear real instruments in a song? What I appreciate about Prince as an artist is that though he’s clearly grown, evolved and even experimented, his music is still consistent to his iconic brand. I’m digging this song. What do you think about it?

    Interesting sound. It reminds me of CW, but I don’t recall ever hearing any with a horn section.
