It would appear that Prince is in a rather nostalgic mindset these days. His latest slew of 3rdeyegirl records have all in one way or another harkened back to the 90′s – from grunge rock to R&B/soul. This reflective theory is reinforced on this undercover reworking of Janelle Monae’s ‘Q.U.E.E.N’ featuring Erykah Badu. Played during his 3rdeyeTV stream a few days ago Prince resurrects his 1991 New Power Generation days with a remix that recalls the dirty steeze of ‘Gett Off’.

Heaven only knows if this will ever see an official release but for the time being (or at least until it gets shut down) enjoy it below.

Update: Unfortunately we’ve had to remove the stream following a DMCA infringement notice from Warner Music Group. Blame them.

  1. [...] The song will appear on Monáe’s The Electric Lady, which will also feature Prince and Miguel. She has described Prince as a “great friend” and a “mentor,” so it’s only fitting that Prince would rework ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’. His version tweaks the original into something more sleek; stream it below (while you can) via Pinboard. [...]

  2. [...] We knew that Janelle Monae got Prince to appear on her upcoming album, Electric Lady, but we had no idea they had become remix-eachother close! Prince‘s remix of Electric Lady‘s first single is stripped bare, chugging along with a thick, molasses bass line and circa-1999 Prince drums and synth. Yes, that’s as awesome as it sounds. Listen below[1]: [...]

    [...]Vandaag kwam er een door Prince geremixte versie van “Q.U.E.E.N.” uit de lucht vallen. Deze track van Janelle Monáe en Erykah Badu was al een van onze favoriete liedjes dit jaar. Deze remix van Prince doet daar nog eens een schepje bovenop. Muziekblog Pinboard wist er via een live-stream op het 3rdEyeGirl TV video channel de hand op te leggen. Chapeau! [...]

  5. [...] As previously reported, Janelle Monáe nabbed some juggernaut talent for her forthcoming sophomore album, The Electric Lady – most importantly, Prince. Now that they’re in cahoots together, the Minneapolis legend has worked his magic over the album’s lead single, “Q.U.E.E.N.” featuring Erykah Badu. As expected, the retooling is a greasy, funky, and saucy product straight from the proverbial oven. So, if you’ve got a few minutes to spare, throw on some velvet and take a listen at Pinboard.

  15. [...] Since the  April 22nd release of the song Q.U.E.E.N by Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu, fans of both artists have been very pleased. Earlier this week, a pleasant surprise surfaced on the internet– a remix of the song, done by the one and only Prince. He does not sing on the track but he definitely has put his touch of funk on it. Q.U.E.E.N is to be featured on Janelle’s sophmore album The Electric Lady, due to be released in September. Listen to the track by clicking this link. [...]
