Prince has a crazy number of albums under his belt, and a loyal following at that. After taking a four-year break, he returned this year with not one, but two new albums. He put them out at the same time, and managed to move units on each, with each debuting within Billboard 200's top 10.
Prince makes a return to the music with not one, but two new albums. His 34th (if you can believe it) solo album Art Official Age is officially streaming via Spotify today, as is his collaborative album with his female touring band 3RDEYEGIRL, PlectrumElectrum. His last album was four years ago with 20Ten.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
On September 29th, Prince will release not one, but two new albums. One, PLECTRUMELECTRUM, will be a collaborative effort with his three piece 3RDEYEGIRL band, and the other, Art Official Age, will be a more standard offering from the Purple One.
Lil Mo did not have a great time at the Essence festival yesterday. Despite possessing a VIP pass, the singer had trouble making it to the bathroom backstage, being stopped by police while Prince was making his entrance.
