Prince’s New Single Flows Like an Electric Stream – “U Know”
This year has been a mighty one for his Purple Highness. Let alone the 30 year anniversary of Purple Rain (both the film and album), Prince’s presence has been felt everywhere. From his takeover of the Arsenio Hall Show, to his guest spot on The New Girl following the Super Bowl, and of course his headlining of the Essence Music Festival, Prince has been the man of 2014. Continuing to gear up for the release of a new album, “U Know” is another single from the album, featuring his all-female band 3rd Eye Girl. The song slinks, with a nice slow tempo.
