Really, I’m expecting that we had you at “audio” and “Prince” but the last word “Extraloveable” is key as well because this is a new recording of one of  the Purple One’s most-bootlegged songs from the 80s. The new joint, featuring the lovely Andy Allo (see above), is a teaser for his Welcome 2 Canada tour and thus has been released exclusively via the Canadian iTunes store (compare with the original via the magic of youtube below.)

The most amazing thing about this song is how much this new version reminds me of this Ryan Leslie joint we just posted on–which is the biggest compliment I could ever pay Ryan Les and also evidence that Mr. Rogers Nelson’s music is more relevant than ever. But don’t take my word for it. Go see his Princely self live (upcoming dates after the jump) and watch him show these youngbloods how you really mix that purple shit.

    I love this joint! OMG! It’s too dope! I like the original better. It’s musically superior in my humble opinion even if it is a lil self indulgent. I’m a Prince head and I can’t believe there’s another song I’ve never heard of by him. Unfortunately for me The last 15years or so his songs have been mostly misses not enough hits. But if this man is sittin on joints like this in his vault it’s a shame he won’t share a quality version of it with everyone. For those of you who like this song then I know you’ll like “Electric Intercourse” I have a shitty live version of this song and I still play the hell out of it.
