Prince seems to have given up on hating the internet. First, he joined Twitter, then Instagram, now he’s writing songs about memes that were inspired by him.
Yesterday, Prince tweeted out a link to a 36-second snippet of the song, “This Could Be Us,” which was inspired by a meme of him from Purple Rain where he’s seen riding on a motorcycle with Apollonia.
The track is a sensual ballad featuring Prince’s signature falsetto and, of course, the line, “This could be us, but you playin’.”
