    I am a huge Prince fan, and this song is crap. IMHO. I hope this does not reflect his current musical direction.

    ok, so i loved it because it’s way better than the “fight” song, and Cause and Effect..

    i hate it also because every time i hear the chords in the chorus i think of HOT BLOODED by Foreigner, which is a wayyy better song…i’m just sayin’

    Prince, u are way more talented than the “elders” (Larry Graham) would allow u 2 be!! Y waste the years u have left making mediocre material?? if u’ve run out of earth shattering ideas, start remastering those “vault” songs and put them out.. unedited(thankuverymuch)!!

    Otherwise, please emancipate yourself from those JW CHAINS and MR.GRAHAM(the man behind the curtain) and get back to making something the world just has to have.. WILL I AM, TIMBALAND, THE ROOTS and so many more artists site u as their inspiration, yet they are all out classing and out performing u.

    with MJJ gone (REST IN PEACE,KING) U should be making the music that everyone needs right now.. no auto tone, no b.s. rapping, no bling bling. just a hot album like u used to be able to do at the drop of a hat!! where are those 3 and 4 albums a year u said Warner wouldn’t let u put out??

    I’m still gonna wave the Prince flag, I’m still gonna listen to everything u put out, but PLEASE!!!! PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!!! make a HOT album, no filler.. a straight 10 or 11 single album and follow it up with a HOT tour!!

    I’m done ranting.. it’s just my 2 cents.. and that’s all i have for u!!

    Peace,
    MADD

    Awful and uninspired… It is really a shame to hear that shit coming from Prince. I can´t believe it.

    The song is light and catchy and more of what I’ve come to expect from Prince. He’s on the lighter side of musicality these days and I really, really, really, really think it would inject some deeper, soulful, full instrumentated stylizations into Prince’s music if he were to have an outside producer produce him for ONCE. Who I’d love to see produce him and a full album would be none other than Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Bring in all their old and new synths, a real band, some strings and make a complex, funky, soulful and FULL sounding bunch of songs. With Jam & Lewis’ ears in the mix, it would lift Prince’s songs up to the next level.

    It’s a Light-Hearted song from some one who sounds like they are in Love!!!! I’m not sure if that is a good thing or not…… But the last quality music I’ve heard from Prince was the “Large Room with No Light” remake.

    I Would Love an Album of that material.

    ~~ Musgrave – Chicago

    PS> And it would not hurt to give Eric Leeds and Sheena Easton a Call. =)

    Such irony one of the few artists who produced good music in the 80s makes a song that sounds like a bad 80s track! Prince you are amazing, London Indigo gigs out of this world – what the hell is this? come on you can do soooo much better!

    I can’t help but wonder what this song could have been with input from the girls and without influence from the cult.

    Crap.

    Awful. Is this what he’s been working at that lonely old, near abandoned Paisley Park Studios?

    Tamborine with snare? He did that on Cinnamon Girl and that sucked. That was 2004/5, its 2010, same shit. Its starting to “sound” as if Prince is doing a Lenny Kravitz – doing the same old crap over and over and over and over again.

    No, its not my summer song. No it does not instantly make me happy and all summery. Its lame and Scriptur-y. A perfect make-believe Jehovah Witness song to make his elders or whatever …happy.

    I like Hot Summer. For me, it’s a nice little foot- tappin’, head-boppin’ tune. 🙂
