The song will not blow up big. It just won't. Prince isn't "cool" to the masses anymore, at least not to the extent that they'll buy his music. Also, album sales for most artists ain't shit.

That being said, I bought the song off iTunes at like 2:30 in the morning. I believe in supporting the artists I enjoy.

This song is going nowhere, aside from onto fans who can be bothered's hard drives.

Although a great track (IMO) it wont be blowing anything anytime soon.

One thing I did notice though, it is on Tidal, and it does state on there Licensed to Warner Brothers, I was wondering if he was still going to be doing anything with them or not.

Prince might as well should have released it on iTunes from the begining

Its a great song, but its not blowing up big. Guys in their late 50's do not blow up big commercially 35 years after their commercial peak. That would have been like Sinatra, Jerry Lee Lewis or Fats Domino blowing up big in the 80's when I was in high school. The masses are not going to listen to artists older than their parents. All MHO.

There's always a delay after a track is submitted before it goes live in the iTunes store. He was probably too impatient to wait, so he put it up on SoundCloud early.

The song might chart on the BILLBOARD HOT 100 at number #99 but songs that blow up big are songs that radio stations put in rotation immediately and is talked about on social media adnauseum. I like the song and it has a downtempo groove that's interesting but even though the song has a hook, it's not catchy enough to really sing along too. Hope the song is followed up with an album.

Carlos Santana, born 1947, commercial breakthrough and succes late 1960s and early 1970s.

Commercial and atistic comeback 1999/2000 with Supernatural: 15(!) times platinum in the US and won 9 Grammy Awards.

Age at that time 53.

Call Supernatural a commercial comeback... but artistic? This is surely the point where Santana finally fell off the cliff of artistic-ness (clunky) into the sea of mediocrity.

Interesting that Carlos Santana had to make some of the worst music ever cut to tape in order to have a massive comeback hit.... he shaved and gouged every ounce of personality from his music, until is was bland enough to be bought by those people who don't really like music... the Wallpaper Millions.

Hmmm, I wonder if that's what Prince has basically been doing since Musicology (with the possible exception of Lotusflower and Art Official Age/Plectrum Electrum.

Course he kind of tried that with Rave, and it could hardly have been less effective.

I quite like Hard Rock Lover, but I think the chances of it 'blowing up' are slimmer than a whore's chastity belt.

Ah well...

It could chart (certainly it could make it to the lower end of the top 100) but it's not going to because Prince is going to go out of his way to make sure the smallest amount of people will listen to it. Only available in tidal for streaming and (so far) itunes for buying, no video for YouTube, no tv performances... If he approached the release of his new music in a different way some of his new songs could find an audience (recently, Funknroll, U Know, Fallinluv2nite, Wow... They all could have had some sort of commercial life), but he doesn't care... Imagine how this sounds live and imagine he played it on a couple of shows followed by he announcement 'available to download now', and a cool video went up on YouTube at the same time... A lot of people would care for it. But it's Prince. If people listen to his music or even buy it they are ripping him off, so it's just not going to happen...

No video either. I think this and funk n roll could made small waves with a video and some joint up thinking. Not a major hit like, but I reckon he's in the consciousness a little at the moment with doing awards, Baltimore, playing the Whitehouse and hipsters seeing him as cool. A minimal video on YouTube with a big Afro and some shades and then link to iTunes or wherever.
