Prince Releases 2 New Albums, Performs With Kendrick Lamar On Livestream Concert
Prince celebrated the release of his two new albums, Plectrumelectrum and Art Official Age, with a Yahoo concert special, where he invited Kendrick Lamar to get up on stage during his performance of “What’s My Name.”
Prince Releases Two New Albums
Prince performed for a live streaming audience Tuesday night, performing songs from, Plectrumelectrum, a full-length album Prince recorded with the group 3rdEyeGirl, and also sampling his solo LP, Art Official Age. The release of these two albums marks a return for Prince, who has not released new music since 2009.
Prince’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on “What’s My Name” was surprising, not only due to the rapper’s unannounced appearance, but also because the song is from Prince’s 1998 box set, Crystal Ball.
