Oh heck yeah. Time to watch them all. Shouldn't they have posted the actual IWD4U and BIAS music videos taken from the movie?

Looks official, it links to the official Prince music site and it's promoting PR DELUXE...

PRINCE finally on YOUTUBE.... Only 10 years too late, but better late than never.

At last! From a fan's perspective, his rejection of YouTube was a harebrained mistake.

Holy shit.
I'm listening to TMWU on the headphones, man, that stuff is exhilarating.
It really does sound like you're in the audience.
I wonder if Grundman had something to do with it.

Anyway, great news!

...but it's mostly 480p. Oh well, it's not Prince fault if he triumphed in these times.
BTW, Syracuse by overlooked by Bernie sounds awesome.
When you know how to tweak a compressor/expander/de-esser/enhancer, it sounds loud AND you have dynamics.

So, if I'm not mistaken, that means I can do this without being snipped :

Yup.
The best free marketing he could have done.
I just saw a news report where a woman put up slime videos on YouTube and made enough to buy her parents a house.
.
If he had put his own up, it would have been a more legitimate move to remove others.

But he was bullheaded in an analog way.

Wait, Prince was good with slime too? I'm constantly baffled by the man's talents.

Awesome link.

Background chick vocals on Baby I'm a Star, Landover are beyond words. Incomprehensibly awful. Yes, understood this is not a news flash though.

If this is official does that mean there's been some progress with his catalogue? OMG
Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.

But YOUTUBE was not offering artist any money at all when it first started and what they offer now is not much. The invention of YOUTUBE did not help music sales. In addtion, you could always find stuff if you looked so he was never completly gone from YOUTUBE. I suspect he had a dollar figure and Goggle was not going to meet his price.

Let's not forget that Youtube still doesn't make any profit.
Sucking in and spitting out so many gigabytes per second requires tremendous server horsepower. It's state of the art, when you think about it: whatever the hour, whatever the device, whatever the connection, whatever the video you're asking for, Youtube delivers, and it comes at a cost.

I never understood Prince's short term view on this particular subject. He came across as someone who wants to be paid upfront, without thinking about the long tail and the exposure.
Like it's okay to grab a million for a one-time show, but not to build a lasting presence (Bob Marley, John Lennon, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix) which is, in the long run, more profitable.

Maybe this kind of long-term thinking was in conflict with his views on time ("time ? What time ? What Time is it? Time is a construct", etc.).

You all always repeat on this forum 'Yotube is not paying,Spotify is not paying'. There are local bands in my country that are buying their houses and paying the rent with their youtube views. Imagine artists like Prince who can easily get 100m views, okay he won't make 10m dollars from youtube but he could still make decent money. It's better than not money at all, and videos are promo for the album/new music/tour etc.

Prince was delusional about this and his fans too. Look at Madonna, U2, Paul McCartney, look at any legend, their music is available everywhere and they are selling stadiums/arenas around the world.

If Hit N Run albums had music videos on youtube, singles on spotify, i am sure the albums would be Top 10 like Art Official Age at least. Those albums didn't even touch the Top 40.

Looks like this is a Warner Bros thing. When you click on about and then official website it takes you to WB’s Purple Rain website.

Also it's funny how the quality on the concert videos is better than the quality of the Syracuse DVD 🙃
