there's a new countdown on his site that counts down to Monday. with the rumors of the song featuring Jay Z and Beyonce and produced by Timbaland, i think it's safe to assume that the single will be out on Monday.
Ah yeah just got it, I clicked "watch on YouTube" link on the video initially so didn' get that. Cheers.
Haven't heard recent Prince, but I was actually trying to wonder why his name keeps getting brought up so that's the first legitimate response.
And yeah, I'm already a bit distant from it for a song that hasn't even been out for a day. It's just not very memorable in any aspect.
Ah yeah well that's what it is for me. The delivery of his vocals, like the actual patterning rather than the sound (sounds weird, I apologise) reminds me of a Prince delivery and musically elements of it remind me of recent stuff from the albums I mentioned.
Is there any word on if Justin or Jay-Z is performing first for the tour? I'd GUESS it's Justin, but have they actually said?
It kicked off last night in London "officially" and they shared an almost 3 hour setlist, playing on each others songs (Justin playing guitar or keys on some tracks of Jay-Z's), doing mash ups of their songs together ("Excuse Me Miss"/"Senorita") as well as performing songs from their back catalogues on their own with the big backing bands etc. Not sure if it will be the same for the whole tour seeing as this was a big festival event, but it was billed as the official start to the tour and Rihanna joined them. That being said, the night before at the same festival, Justin played a full set of his own material. For a clearer idea, here's the setlist:
