His purple majesty is back again with his latest video release on YouTube, which he’s had a grip against for the longest time.
Prince released “Rock and Roll Love Affair” on November 22nd with very little reception with only 223,495 hits as of today (a considerable lot less than if it had a cute puppy that sings in it, or a Honey Boo-Boo video).
Prince’s last album release was 20Ten in July of 201o with mixed reviews but still failed any substantial audience success.
Much like the material on the 20Ten album, “Rock and Roll Love Affair” is a blatant throwback to Prince’s successful heyday, starting with 1979’s Prince album, ran through the 80’s with 1982’s 1999, 1984’s massive successful Purple Rain and 1987’s Sign O The Times.
