We gave it a B

Harken back to those glory days before he was The Artist Formerly Known As Prince (TAFKAP) and was just Prince. In this elaborate companion video to the year-old album, Prince falls in love with Mayte, an Egyptian princess-belly dancer, who after a few gratuitous T&A shots flees Cairo and heads straight for Minneapolis (bet you didn’t know there were direct flights). Once there, Mayte jets around with Prince, who inspires a slew of lush, big-budget clips and twirls around with a sword perched on his head. This culminates with him renouncing his past and his name and making plans for his equally enigmatic future.
