Illustration for article titled Rowr: Prince Releases Snippet of New Song Breakfast Can Wait

And yes, that is Dave Chappelle as Prince in the cover art because Prince is perfect.


Here's the snippet for Breakfast Can Wait — just don't play this song for Walt Jr. because that shit will not fly.

If you have a mouth and other body parts, you're probably panting right now.

And in conclusion, Prince: What else is there to say but MORE PLEASE. I will now share my friend's story of meeting him when he played a New Years party she worked at in 1999. He walked past her surrounded by the most beautiful women you've never had the pleasure of laying your eyes on, and asked my friend "Where's the bathroom?" She told him and he said, "Thanks, friend." And so yeah, I'm basically friends by association with Prince now. And so are you. That's how it works with Prince.

So, I have no verifiable proof that this story is true; I just heard it from a friend who said it happened to his friend. I like to believe it's true because it's amazing.

So, my friend-of-friend lives in the Minneapolis suburb where Prince's home and private studio are located, and he went out for a jog one evening. It began to rain heavily, and he stopped under a bus shelter or something to wait it out. Soon after, a limo pulled up to him, and the window rolled down. It was Prince. He offered the jogger a ride, and he took it, of course. They quietly sat next to each other in the backseat, until Prince asked if he'd like to hear some music—a collection of Prince's discography popped up from a compartment, and Prince chose Purple Rain. They continued on, and finally got to the jogger's home when "Purple Rain" came on. The guy motioned to get out of the car, and Prince held up a hand.

"Wait. Let the song finish." They did.

And then he drove off into the night.
