Janelle Monae’s single sounds like Prince because it was Prince

Janelle Monae’s single sounds like Prince because it was Prince
When Janelle Monae dropped comeback single Make Me Feel the other day everyone was immediately reminded of Prince, because it sounded exactly like something he’d have made. i.e. very, very funky.
 
Well, it turns out there’s a reason for this: it was Prince.  He collaborated on the forthcoming album, and the totally Prince synth line was something he’d written a while before. We know this because Lenka Paris, one of Prince’s team, said it in a deleted Facebook post: she’d heard the synth two years ago and recognised it immediately when Make Me Feel came out.
