Prince has influenced at least four decades of artists. Rock & Roll, soulful, sensitive, and sexual, Prince’s music is very dynamic, and completely disregards expectations. Artists ranging from Drake to Phonte to The Weeknd to Solange are all clearly inspired by the Twin Cities icon. Well, Prince is far from over, and he seemingly touched the times on “The Breakdown.” The new tune lives up to its name, with Prince symbolically breaking down in the middle of the song (amidst a musical breakdown at that). However, check the songwriting, and see if it reminds you of some of what you regularly hear on Pop radio in 2014…
