Prince gave a Frnch radio station a sample of a new song entitled "Rich Friends" and said it would be from 20Ten Deluxe edition.  20Ten was previously available in newspapers where he was touring earlier this year.

No word if this edition of 20Tenwill make it's way to the US or not. 

For now, enjoy listening to what we have of the track below and thanks to a French Prince fan site for the heads up n hooking us up.

What do you think?  It's only 20 seconds so hopefully no one is saying it's "Purple Rain" part deux.-Dr.FB

  1. From what little I heard, it sounds cool, but definitely not that “hit” we all believe he is capable
    of.

    I wonder if WB will b pushing the 20Ten Deluxe project?

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yeah…..Thanks a lot, I LOVE this sound!!
    France is ready to get funky!!!!!!!! …. Till the sun comes up ;-)

  3. I LOVE IT…Prince is amazing…I can’t wait to get 20ten deluxe

  4. Let’s go…

  5. Loving this! I have 2 calm down, I’m way 2 excited over here :) Thumbs up Mr. Purple Yoda

  6. I’ll reserve my opinion till I hear the entire song but I wish Prince would go back to that time when he had something to prove.

  7. and how can I get one of those cool outtathisworld shirts???!

  8. thanx doc, l love it! Wish I had more of the purple yoda’s magical funky jams!

  9. cool thanx 4 sharing hope it gets released in the US

  10. … am I the only one that thinks this song is P’s personal joke. It sounds like something Jamie Foxxx would do on ‘Living Color’ … LoL

  11. sounds like another hit 2 me!

  12. Deluxe Edition? I wonder if it includes my Lotusflow3r t-shirt. :-)

  13. Same kind of vibe as Sticky Like Glue. 20Ten was probably his most consistent, exciting effort in the last ten years or so, so I’m looking forward to this. Here’s hoping that it’s going to be a full cased, liner noted affair, released worldwide! Funk for all!

  14. ……Dus…
    Doc, thanks for posting deary.

  15. Sounds great, can’t wait for the rest of the song.

  21. :music: who needs money when you got Rich Friends…?
    Sho’nuff! :headbang:
    20Ten Deluxe–bring it on!

  22. I absolutely <3 The New Snippet. Sounds like VINTAGE PRINCE… Definitely lookin 4ward to The Deluxe Edition.

  23. So far the snippet sounds good. “Rich Friends” has that “Willing and Able” vibe…funk, falsetto and gospel wrapped into one. In other words…”chu’ch.” Reminds me of when the Steeles did backing vocals for Prince back in the 90s.

  24. The dirty new sound he teased on Laydown is here…..love it.

  25. This sounds like simply a masterpiece. i always said that I thought there would be a new version of 20TEN. My prediction came true…………….
