The one n funky PRINCE has released a new song entitled "HARDROCKLOVER" today. The announcement came via his twitter account (PRINCE3EG) and posted to Soundcloud.
The music icon sings and speaks in his lower voice speaking of his "HARDROCKLOVER" from a R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement) dream and then seeing if he can make this woman scream.
A shout to Red Bull and Patron "Ain't No Rapper Trying To Be A Singer" reaps of shades of "Dead On It" from The Black Album from Prince along a light stab at Sade and Babyface over a blistering guitar solo that is either Prince or Donna Grantis getting it in from his band 3RDEYEGIRL.
Who says nothing good ever happens after midnight???!!

Diagnosis: A Hot HARDROCK Summer....indeed!
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL performed a special concert at the White House on Saturday night along with a special appearance by Stevie Wonder before performing 2 sold out shows at the Warner Theater Sunday night where the late show featured Stevie Wonder as well.
The Sunday shows were announced earlier this week as part of Prince's #HITandRun Tour and the White House show was done on the hush hush. With the Secret Service in place as well as Prince's own no cell phone policy, if it wasn't for V.I.P's like Re.v Al Sharpton, Russell Wilson, Ciara, and Jon Bon Jovi, there may have been no details about his 2 hour show that featured Wonder on a version of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours". No word if Tipper Gore was there but there was a Housequake for sure at 1600 Penn!
As for Sunday's shows, The Washington Post gave 4 observations that are interesting.
In another article said that Prince may be the greatest to ever do what he does.
Judith Hill also performed with Prince.
