Yesterday Prince invited a small cadre over to his Paisley Park Studios, including Minneapolis’ Star Tribune, to preview tracks from upcoming album Plectrum Electrum. Featured on the album: a rap track with Rita Ora (wtf) and a heart ballad titled ‘This Could Be Us’. Sound familiar? It should.
The song is inspired by the #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin meme – particular the Prince and Apollonia on a motorcycle one. The hashtag has gone viral on social media, and is typically paired with awkward photos of would-be couples.
The ballad will feature on Prince’s first album since 2010, and has high hopes for its listeners to Fallinlove2nite.
