3121 FOR REAL......

3121 FOR REAL.

March 1, 2021 will offically be a once in a lifetime 3121 date on the calendar.

What a huge opportunity for the P estate to get something big together for release on 3121 next year -right?

24 hour dance parties around the world especially in LA, tshirts, collectables, remix, new music, on and on. Let's hope for some big surprises.

Prince, of course, would have already had something major planned for this funky date. Wonder what Prince Estate will create.

Thoughts fam?

In terms of 3121 related 'new' music, Sony of course reissued the album within the past 18 months, and I doubt that there will be a very big demand for unrelased songs.

But also... there is the 3121 film that remains unreleased, I wonder if anyone has the rights to release it?

This is the kind of outside-the-box thinking that those who work within and with The Estate would benefit from them.

Creative. I like it.

Good thinking on the 3121 film-fingers crossed!

Realistically, it will probably come and go with little to no fanfare. Maybe his social media accounts will mention it or something but that's about it.

But it would be cool if we got a new re-release with bonus outtakes and possibly even a DVD of a live show. 3121 was the album that got me started as a Prince fan so I probably like that album more than most other Prince fans. It has a kind of sentimental value to me.

I think they'd have to explain how 3121 relates to Prince. I'm not sure people that helped make it a #1 record even registered what the number is.

The REAL 3121 home. The original, owned by a real estate investor and his wife (Barbie Benton). Boozer's home was later:

Yeah. Absolutely nothing Prince-related is going to happen on either January 3rd or March 1st next year.

This is a non-thing.

Stay funky, stay positive purple people.

Wait for it....the P Estate (or others) will not let this date in the USA go un-noticed

(especially in LA).

Prince's assistant Ruth said on QLS the film is horrible LOL

"You know, this is funky but I wish he'd play like he used to, old scragglyhead son of a...*smack* OOH!"

Never seen these pics - thanks a lot, laytonian! A really gorgeous house.

Now i can understand why he instantly wrote a song about it.

Did anyone ever really decode the numerology behind the album title?

WE know Prince liked to play with numbers a lot and have had some fun with other numbers on occasion but did it really all just come down to the L.A. address?

My heart tells me it meant more somehow but...maybe not.

He also said during singing the song at the BET Awards in 2006: "where the party at? Read Psalms, it's in Psalms".

It's a biblical reference to Psalm 31:21

Yes Prince always said -just listen to his music, it's all there for us to understand him more. He always used double entrendres in his lyrics.

Well, cool. Thanks. That makes sense. Let's post it though


Psalm 31:21 New International Version (NIV)

21 Praise be to the Lord,
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.

While we're on the subject of 3121, why does it look like the two number '1's on Prince's jacket on the cover have been painted on? This has always bugged me.

Psalm 31:21 New International Version (NIV)



21 Praise be to the Lord,
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.




Wake up
You're beautiful, loved and blessed
Feel me? (I think I do)
When you found me I was just a piece of clay
I was formless, you gave me a new name
With the breath of life I now live abundantly
All I needed was the potter's hand
And the blood on Calvary (that's right)
But to much power (tell it)
Can can sometimes turn to shame
To much desire
Sometimes makes you feel the same (come on)
But forgiveness is how you win the game
I begged for truth, now I know the truth
And that is when you came and said I was
Beautiful, loved and blessed

I'm better than the day before
Cause you made me confess that I am,
Beautiful, loved and blessed
When you're free you're really free indeed
All you gotta do is just plant the seed
A constant battle to stay ahead of the game
Is anybody famous when everybody wants fame?
Always trying to break you down
Thinkin' that'll raise 'em up
I just wanna be happy
Come take this bitter cup from me
If I were ever to write my life story
I could truly say through all the pain and glory
I was just a piece of clay in need of the potter's hand
Cause when you whispered in my ear
The words I so now understand, oh
Beautiful, loved and blessed
I'm better than the day before
Cause you made me confess that I am,
Beautiful, loved and blessed
When you're free you're really free indeed
All you gotta do is just plant the seed
Everything you made you said, "That's good"
Before the fall of man you said, "That's good"
Every time I walk in faith, that's good
You let me see another day, that's good
Before the earth was made you said,
"Tamar, I will lead the way and you'll go far"
Knowledge and understanding
Understanding is good
And when I wake up in the morning
All I hear in my hood is people saying that they're
Beautiful, loved and blessed
When you rescue me from the darkness
And our heart just must confess
Beautiful, loved and blessed
When you're free you're free indeed
All you gotta do is just plant the seed
Hey, hey, hey
Wake up it's a new day
Hey, hey, hey
Wave you're hands in the air and say
Hey, hey, hey
Wake up it's a new day
Hey, hey, hey
Wave you're hands in the air and say
Beautiful, loved and blessed
You rescued me from the darkness in the wilderness
But I am beautiful, loved and blessed
No matter what the challenge
I always pass the test
That's what I am, beautiful
That's what I am, beautiful
I don't mean to put nobody down
Still I must confess that I am
Beautiful, that's what I am
That's what I am
When you wanna give up, don't cause you know
You always got a friend
That's what I am, that's what I am
That's' what I am
Beautiful, beautiful
That's what I am, that's what I am
That's' what I am
Beautiful, beautiful
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful
