Prince’s latest single is a falsetto-filled slow jam inspired by… a meme.

The track, titled “This Could Be Us,” gets its name from a viral photo of Prince and Purple Rain co-star Apollonia Kotero captioned with the popular Twitter hashtag, “This could be us but you playin’.”

“This Could Be Us” is off Prince’s Art Official Age, one of the two albums he released this past September.
