Prince invites London singer/songwriter to record with him

The Sun (UK) Newspaper reports Prince has invited London singer Lianne La Havas to record with him after watching a gig streamlined online last week.

If it's true - lucky bitch smile

Little? Yeah, right. It might be little but it's loud

Prince please work with some musical heavyweights instead of young upstarts like this. Tamar, Bria, Andy.......see anything common here? I'm sure she's talented, I do, but jeez Prince.....

I have a sneaking suspicion this is what he's trying (and failing) to get &y to sound like...

A source said: "Prince's email said he was a big fan.

That must be a typo, surely he wrote 'fam'!

Can't see anything on dingleberries shite about this, but there is a rather nice new picture of Mayte and some gabble about her getting on a TV show.

The guitar strap goblins must have broken into her dressing room with their special scissors again. If that guitar was any higher it'd be a violin.

Yawn. They have at least one of these on the BBC every week - either on Jules Holand, or clogging up the back end of the Review Show or Andrew Marr - did he just close his eyes and pick one at random?

It's like the 70s again. lol

While her voice sounds like countless others, she's at least a decent guitar player. shrug

Actually, that's considered the "correct" positioning... most classical and jazz players strap in on high like that.

I don't...

Just sayin'.

LOL, exactly, so what is she, plan B? I like this girl she seems very talented but again, she is not funky, she seems to be a good jazz singer, I don't want to see her forced to become a funky singer, because it is a lost cause just like the attempt to turn Andy Allo into the newest funky goddess.

Why does Prince always try to quickly attach his name to young upcoming singers? This girl would do well to stay away from him but she won't because she's upcoming and only knows he is the "legendary Prince" trying to help her more fans. She doesn't know he's just using her and really trying to promote him. His motives are so obvious. I don't think it's about the music. It's about money and reputation with Prince.

I think you mean Esperanza, not Janelle.

Probably not. Prince has always lliked to have multiple pies in the oven so to speak as backups to any one main girl.

However, this girl sounds 1000 times better than Andy so far. She's got something in her voice instead of that whispering crispy impro voice that Andy imitates.

I kinda think it's not bad that he's reaching out to young people and motivates them, kudos to him. Imagine how it'd be like if you are starting fesh and u get a call for a chance to write with Prince.

Now, I'm kinda happy. This woman here looks real to me. Good voice, good guitar. I love that here, good stuff. Maybe he had a reality check after all. lol

Prince must have seen this video & was like "this is exactly wat I was going for, you see this Andy - be more like her!!". Andy would then cry & run off to her bedroom screaming "I thought u loved me. Well let's see her try & do the Cameroon at 3am for you & ur little friends, Bitch!!"

I think Lianne sounds lovely. Great song too!!
pray Peace in the House of Prince.

I agree, I imagine Prince and her voice would sound so good together. She looks natural and has no forcibly impro voice, this is what I imagine a collab to be like. So far I still haven't figured out what Andy was trying to be, a model, a singer, actor or what? lol

Prince I will always miss and love U.
