Prince is up to something this year. He’s done a handful of concerts and has been rolling out some exciting new material in recent months, but with typical misdirection and mystery. For his latest trick, the Purple One has remixed Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu‘s wonderful “Q.U.E.E.N.,” turning it into an ’80s-style funk number. (That undulating bass line certainly brings to mind Digital Underground‘s “The Humpty Dance.”)

The original song is off Monae’s forthcoming album The Electric Lady, and Prince is making a rare guest spot on one of the tracks. Hear his remix below.
