Prince's Dave Chappelle Single Cover Is A Major Win


By Maurice Bobb

Surprise, ladies and gents, Prince knows how to bring the funny. The Artist Formerly Known As “The Artist Formerly Known As” used an image from a popular Dave Chappelle skit from “Chappelle’s Show,” in which the comedian parodies the Purple Man for his latest single, “Breakfast Can Wait.”

“I'm still not 100% sure if @3rdeyegirl isn't f---ing w/ us all!,” tweeted @asiansplenda. 

Outside of a little disbelief, fans were overwhelmingly amused by the elusive crooner’s sense of humor. It also lends to the idea that maybe Charlie Murphy’s “True Hollywood” stories about his encounters with Prince were actually true. One thing’s for sure, though, at least everyone knows now that Prince saw the hilarious episode and loved it.
