Watch: Prince shreds a little in new song, ‘Laydown’

Prince gets his funk on with new song “Laydown,” which he premieres on “Lopez Tonight” tonight, but we have a sneak preview of the full song below.

We really like it where Prince refers to himself as “the purple Yoda.” He also takes a swipe at plastic surgery. Need we add he does all this while sheathed in a sparkly gold pants suit and lays down some guitar shredding that would make Metallica proud.

As we previously reported, Prince begins a 21-date Los Angeles residency tonight at The Forum, which he also took to George Lopez’s nightly TBS show to announce.
