Prince - "She's Always In My Hair" Live In Vancouver

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Prince leaks a live recording--straight off the soundboard!--of his jam "She's Always In My Hair" performed at his first tour stop in Vancouver. Since this is coming via the diabolical Dr. Funkenberry--who also leaked the tour and album title news--we can safely assume that this might actually stay up on soundcloud for a minute rather than dissolving into shimmering purple gossamer like most online streams of Prince's music.

The timing of this seems doubly appropriate since both Prince and D'Angelo--who covered this track on the soundtrack for Scream 2 (with a little help from ?uestlove)--are threatening to drop new albums for the first time in millenia (New Prince jams and a new D'Angelo single coming soon--we are seriously about to break the 7th seal on the apocalypse). In I sense perhaps some sort of 'I Would Die 4 U'/'R&B Jesus' rivalry developing between these two? Stranger things have resulted in classic albums so let's hope for the worst. Listen below and if you Spotify, compare with a stream of the D x ?love version (and watch both Soulquarians speak on the significance of Prince to their musical friendship via the recent OKP TV episodes at bottom).
