Ladies and gentleman, his Purple Highness, Prince, is back with super hot song, The Breakdown. And it's HOT! It seems that Prince has gone back to his 80s roots with this song. The Breakdown is a slow, stately ballad, with lush, layered vocal harmonies, and little guitar, Prince's voice ascending into a falsetto holler. The music icon dropped the new tune just short of midnight on Friday, the same day he announced he's working on a new studio album.
