Recently, Prince announced he will release two new albums at the end of this month: Plectrumelectrum and Art Official Age. That's a pretty big outpouring of new music from the artist, who since 2009 has only released elusive singles and an album that could only be found in copies of a UK newspaper.
Prince on New Girl.
However, despite relentless attempts to keep his face in the spotlight, including an appearance on the Fox sitcom New Girl, those aforementioned singles, and a Dave Chappelle reference that showed he still has something of a sense of humor, it's worth asking where Prince still stands in the public eye.
Is he still relevant? Will these new albums have any impact at all? Or is Prince very quickly becoming a legacy artist?
