the video was exclusive to billboard for 24 hours thats why it wasnt PUBLIC. thats how you drive users to the premiere partners page. trust the folks know what they are doing as they've been doing it for YEARS.

.

The video still shows up in the link I posted from Billboard though, so I'm not sure what EddieC's error is based on.

Just for clarification--I went to the video from the link in Giovanni's original post, I've already seen it, I've already saved it.

.

My confusion was because there were links in other articles on other blogs, and I had missed the fact that Billboard was supposed to have an exclusive premiere (somewhat compromised by other news sources sharing the link to the video rather than to Billboard's own site). My mistake there--I just skimmed the article. What confused me was that a google search would get me to the video from multiple directions, but a search on Youtube itself wouldn't. I understand now that problem wasn't with Youtube (or with Warners promotional plan), but with other people making the link public before it was really supposed to be.

the words EXCLUSIVE are written at the top of the billboard article,

anywho, the only problem that exists is not doing this ------> ENJOY THE VIDEO !!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah--I skimmed the "article"--I completely ignored the title. It was incredibly obvious.

None of the recent videos have been any good, but it almost looks like this was released as a finger to his fans.

U guys got some creative imaginations. Where the hell do u get that from?

Perhaps I'm reading too much into it but the song works well as a statement to those who are not happy with him in general. He didn't write the lyrics but he sure picked them well. Change a few words, and it could be his general "if you don't like me / leave me alone" statement to interested parties, friends, lovers, fans, ex-fans and critics.

I also thought the same thing. Prince's version sounds like a proverbial middle finger to fickle fans, mean spirited hardcore fans, bitter former musical and managerial associates and critics. I hope this becomes a concert staple in 2015. I love this song.

Glad I'm not the only one having that impression. He's beendogged by some of the most ex-devoted nfans in the world. Yet his body of work proves it: he's at the top in terms of creativity and producrivity -- quality varied, and so did our idea of what constitutes quality, but Prince managed to remain true to himself better than anyone -- and make some fierce new sounds.

Art Official Age sounds even better now than it did when it came out.

I love the video. I think Boy Trouble would be a better single. Although I think Another Love

is the best song on the album.

interesting theory. If that was his intention, he should be overjoyed it worked! Which is why both albums flopped. lol

Yeah, but its a song about a relationship... I think most assume his changes to it are specifically about Andy.

Lyric videos are lazy and boring, unless some real thought is put into them. This one makes me think Prince is done with the project altogether. It just looks so uninspired that I can't imagine the general audience noticing or caring. It's dull.

Prince delivers slamming attitude on this jam. Authentic, Genuine and Legondary soulful Funk. Prince and Donna start shredding their guitars after the first 2 minutes into a feirce whirlwind that would rock anyones socks off. This song would be amazing to hear on the Radio biggrin headbang

Props to Ida and Hannah also edit

Arjuna

Not 2 b personal, on my end but
Holy MOSES ain't this song the truth n
Nuthin but it!

List of REAL:

#1 is God Jehovah
#2 is man under the direction of God Jehovah
#3 is woman under the direction of man who is directed by GOD Jehovah

How to know the REAL and LIVE n PEACE

#1 First God Jehovah is first in complete understanding in the lives of the Man and Woman in having unconditional under standing of the LAW of the gift of the covenant of love unconditionally
#2 Man and Woman have complete unconditional respect for each other
#3 Man and woman know the truth of why they are together as THE GIFT from God Jehovah to be in this world and not become idolizing of non-truths
#4 Man and woman listen to each other with peace and civility in mannerism and behavior towards each other
#5 Man and Woman recognize thee only true importance is each other knowing fully well that work is a responsibility towards the joy in having it to be fulfilled in gladness in doing so for the joy in service of loving one another and in doing so gives joy to God Jehovah in his great works through them.

If you want REAL love... u must sacrifice your senses to breaking from the manmade programs of the matrix system and know exactly what divine and majestic truth in the one source of God Jehovah's love is ever since you could breath.

Thank you.

Arjuna.

Is Alice Smith a witness? Because to have such a detailed JW-specific meaning, she would need to be.

I agree the changes he made to the lyrics make Andy Allo the woman he likely was thinking about. That it's also a way of saying something else is more than likely, I just like my theory better. smile

He embellished the song to be about Andy Allo? They were a thing?

How do people hear about Prince's relations? Where (online) does this stuff get talked about? Whatever happened to Bria Valente... and Tamar for that matter?

I find them strangely alluring sometimes. I thought the lyric video for Cee-Lo's "Fuck You" was a whole lot more fun to watch through than the official video that came later when the song become a hit.


This one is ok. It has the SNL performance included there too.

Smart move! Doesn't make any since spending big money on a video. But prince realizes this is his BEST track off P.E. His vocals & instrumentation is STELLAR! It slays everything on #BlackMessiah.

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

I think this song is aimed at his critics and you know what, it's a stupid thing to do. First, the positive. I love Prince's reworking of the song. I much prefer the SNL version though. The album track, just isn't grouded well enough for me. I know for others, it's fine the way it is, but for me I prefer the way he shouted out the ending on SNL.

To me, both the new albums have too many clapbacks on the paying customers. It kind of ruins the experience in much the same way the CONtract and Warn-A-Brotha antics did during the SLAVE phase. Underneath a lot of the tunes are judgemental, salty, pokes-to-the-eyes at the listeners. To put it bluntly: he's acting like a BITCH on these records and it was completely unnecessary.

Dr Dre clapbacked with FORGOT ABOUT 'DRE. But he was bringing out a cultural-tour-de-force in Eminem, with him. He had Eminem writing his rhymes. Prince clapbabacked, with.... Joshua whofarted ?? I know some of you ladies may find Prince's antics cute, but as a dude, I just can't ride with it.

I'm not sure why most folks here don't dig the PlectrumElectrum album. I love that mutha, including 'BoyTrouble'.

'AnotherLove' is fantastic... I keep rewinding to the spot where Prince rips his soul out on vocals. I can never grow tired of this song.

[Edited 12/23/14 11:04am]


Agreed, even about "Boy Trouble". In fact, I figured "Boy Trouble" was a song young people might like. And maybe some young people do like it. But I played it for my 18-year-old-daughter-who-was-raised-on-Prince and she thought it was weird. And not in the good weird way. sad
