Prince has brought back classic choreography in the music video for his latest single, “Breakfast Can Wait.”
The song, which arrived back in early September with Dave Chappelle and pancakes on the cover in reference to Chappelle’s legendary Prince skit on The Chappelle Show, has now been graced with an over-the-top video that features a female impersonator, the most epic dance routine this side of Janet Jackson clips in the ’90s and yes, a pancake. Prince, however, is nowhere to be seen.
The video’s female Prince impersonator is also its director, 18-year-old Danielle Curiel. When she’s not popping up in the clip sporting Prince drag, she’s the crimson-haired lead dancer in the choreographed routine.
In typical Prince fashion, there has been no indication if “Breakfast Can Wait” or his other recent singles “Groovy Potential” and “Extraloveable Reloaded” will be included on the long-rumored full-length, Plectrum Electrum, with his new band, 3RDEYEGIRL.
