Hidden Vocals in Extraloveable

If any of you are familiar with producer JAK3 and his "hidden vocals" videos, there is a new one out on Extraloveable and I must say that Prince doesn't sound so great when you isolate just one track of his vocals as opposed to hearing them massively layered...

What do you guys think?

I think you should listen to it as Prince intended. Anybody can make someone else sound bad.

So you would disagree that his voice in the main vocal line sounds weak and frail?

Because of the layered vocals, people thought it was autotuned, but this proves otherwise.

I love this song so this was a gift.

There is a bit of autotune at the 0:59-1:00 mark

Listen to the original, it's hard to hear in the stripped down version ... that little 'ooooh' is most certainly autotuned

Didn't that pleasant chap Jakeosaurus or whatever he's called start a thread about hidden vocals a while back.

It got locked up pretty quickly.

Fuck the funk - it's time to ditch the worn-out Vegas horns fills, pick up the geee-tar and finally ROCK THE MUTHA-FUCKER!! He hinted at this on Chaos, now it's time to step up and fully DELIVER!!
woot!

Pretty sure that pleasant chap was banned for posting them in a thread here rather than just telling of their existence like I have done today

If he was banned, its because of his reputation for being a balls-out asshole.

I'm listening to it now and I can't help but go back to the arguement that people are unintentionally comparing it to the original bootleg version. I can see your arguement that it seems frail and weak, but I wouldn't say that Prince's voice is not as good--just go to his concerts. The song simply has less energy than the original one. It's not the same song and I don't think it was his intention to have the same feel.

life is but a dream...

If it was not his intention for people to draw comparisons, then why would he cover one of his most famous outtakes?

Honestly, Prince is one of the only artists who fucks with people this way and it ain't cute. Release the stupid song so people can stop bitching about it and let the music speak for itself.

True.

And people have a tendency to read whatever they want into things too, and hear shit that isn't even there as well. I doubt there's any hidden vocals or extra words in the song that the person who made the vid didn't read into it.

His voice sounds weak? Hardly, these hidden vocal tracks are kinda fun to listen to hear all the layers of P's work but at no time do his vocals sound weak.

In fact a few years ago P talked about how his vocals have gotten better in the past few years as evident on SHOE
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.
