Check out the latest visual from The Purple One himself, Prince. It’s for his latest track, “Breakfast Can Wait,” from his upcoming album, tentatively titled Plectrum Electrum.
Although Prince doesn’t appear in the video himself, there’s definitely a lot to take in from the clip, directed by and starring Danielle Curiel. It would’ve been dope to randomly see him and Dave Chappelle in the video, considering he used his picture for the single cover. Oh well.
In PART ONE of our exclusive interview with Solange Knowles, the singer opened up to CL’s Angel Laws about motherhood, her new record company Saint Records, as well as how she managed to find herself in the hectic world that is the entertainment industry.
