The One U Wanna C unrel video

I follow Funkartist on Facebook and they've put a link for this song on there. The video is great, made to look like a1960's music show. It actually makes the song even catchier
My point is-do you recon n if this songs were now revisited as commercial rereleases,they would now be successful?
This song is pure pop for example. During his last 20 yrs he had so much conflict with the industry his exposure was very restricted. Now depressingly that barrier has been removed.

Do you think a wider audience would consume this product if it now got normal commercial exposure? Or is Prince now too polarising commercially as he was for the second half of his life?

Love the song and the video, especially the Prowler at the airport and P in the elevator.

Dunno if it'd be a commercial success though cuz I dunno what plays on radio these days, but it's certainly catchy.

I think you're talking about the version with stills from the 21 Nights book.
.
The OP is talking about a newly surfaced performance version, I think. Him and the band are dressed in 60's gear.

It's reet fucking good. And yes yes yes I think this could easily get traction now - tho I'm biased. Been a fave for a while despite being quite recent. I might have to tell cherrymoon!

It definitely is a fun and catchy song. I do think it was probably the most obvious song for the radio on Planet Earth. However, Prince's music is so different from much of the sh they play on Top 40 these days it is hard to imagine any of his songs charting in the US unless it was on an Urban Contemporary stations and for them I would select one of his R&B leaning ballads.

I think it could've been a big radio hit. But that don't mean shit these days especially in the UK. The most listened to radio station is radio 2 yet not even a quarter of what is on their playlist gets in the charts. The UK chart is made up of the radio 1 playlist which just god awful, mostly dance and modern r&b.

Damn...when did the video surface?

Never mind. Found it. It's cute. Prince looks good. I have to say it looks like he's not really giving FULL PRINCE in it. He seems a little joyless, especially for such a upbeat tune. Maybe even slightly lethargic (for him). Maybe wearing the sunglasses the whole time has something to do with it, as well. His eyes were so expressive.

Does anyone have any info on where this video came from? Seeing as it's a newly released video, does anyone know who released it? Is it an official release from the estate? Just curious.

Thank you but that much I assumed. I am just wondering who released/leaked this.

Yes I am leaning toward agreeing with you. I think the Twinz are more in the spotight on the fun quirky Prince-y type style, the fact that they are "playing" guitars and really animated with their facial expressions. They were are a great energy! And I don't think this was a rehearsal version of the main video, as one could suspect due to Prince's low power. Overall it's just a really fun song and the colors are fantastic. But yes, Prince needs to pump it up.

I've never seen him to a letter C gesture with his hand like that in his career, so that was a teenie little cool choreography touch.

More morsels please!!!!!

Found it... pretty cool. Agree, he doesn't seem to be in full Prince mode.

It's a great pop song with a country twang.

But great staging. I think this video would have raised the song's profile.

What guitar is he playing. Or is the guitar in the video just a prop?

There is now apparently. It's quite cool, check it out on the Facebook page mentioned in the OP.

That was a lyric video mostly. Not the one we're talking about here. It's a trippy 60's Laugh-In inspired clip, only about 2 minutes. Fun, nonetheless.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The orange guitar is dope AF!! But the video isn't great, I can see why it never surfaced. He seems bored here, like they shot this after a long day. The Twinz outfits don't compliment him, everything is a mishmosh. Of course I love seeing him in anything previously unseen, but this video is uninspired (no close ups during the naughty lyric??? PLEEZE) bored
heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart
