Last night in Minneapolis, Prince celebrated the release of his two new albums—Art Official Age and Plectrum Electrum, the later of which he recorded with his band 3RDEYEGIRL—with a webcast "record release party" for Yahoo. The 90-minute event included a tour of his Paisley Park estate, interviews with various collaborators on the albums, and, finally, a brief performance from The Purple One himself. Only three songs long, he bolstered the set with a not-so-surprise guest appearance from Kendrick Lamar. K. Dot led "What's My Name," a rarity from Prince's 1998's Crystal Ball box set, with a new verse in which he claims I'm speakin' to you, I'm speakin' to us, I'm speakin' to we, I speakin' to God. And the best part is, allegedly, there's more from these two yet to come.
