Prince Favors Us With Another Catchy Single


Prince is back. Sort of. First he kinda put out “Screwdriver,” a very catchy single. Now there’s “Breakfast Can Wait.” Again, catchy, fun. A return to Prince of old. Gone is the self indulgent, mysterious endless funk riff stuff. Prince is back into making hits. If he as 10 or 12 of these songs, ol Prince will be out-funking Justin Timberlake. Only problem is Prince has no record label and no conventional way to release this music, so it’s a treasure hunt. Prince, make a deal already.
