Posted on

Prince isn’t known to play by the music biz rules. (Remember last year when he released two albums on the same day with 3rdeyegirl?) In true form, the artist dropped a new track called “HARDROCKLOVER” via SoundCloud on Wednesday with no previous promotion.

With lyrics like, “Ain’t no rapper trying to be a singer, come to make a move/Sade and Babyface, R&B ain’t got no place,” the song is similar to the two previous tracks he put out earlier this year, “WHAT IF” and “Baltimore,” and highlights his signature falsetto.
