At 54 years old, the artist currently known as Prince still looks pretty much the same – he still has his trademark eccentric sense of style, he still puts on an entertaining live show, and he still makes music that is in line with the legacy he has built over the past 34 years as one of the most successful artists in history. All of those points were proven when he made his return to late night television on Wednesday night. Taking the stage on Live on Jimmy Kimmel was the same artist the world has come to know and love, hate, debate, or think of as a superhuman basketball player that serves pancakes and grapes after defeating his opponents. Okay, so not everyone has watched Chapelle’s Show. But regardless, we all know Prince, and it’s always nice to see that an artist hasn’t changed much after so many years in the game. Above, watch the artist informally known as the Purple One perform his new single, “Rock N’ Roll Love Affair,” and click here to see his live rendition of “The Dance Electric” – the hit song he wrote for his former bassist André Cymone back in 1985.
