If you’ve been paying close attention to YouTube lately, you’ll surely have observed that a handful of official, previously unavailable videos spanning the late great Prince’s prolific discography have been resurfacing each week for the past few months. If you haven’t been privy to this development, well, consider this your newsflash.
Now admittedly, the emergence of these classic clips is somewhat clouded by ethical conflict, considering that the notoriously protective icon presumably would have never green-lighted the release of his videos. However, for his legion of lifelong devotees, the reappearance of this treasure trove of aural and visual delights is sure to stroke our collective nostalgia and further solidify our reverence for his indelible creative legacy. In other words, it’s damn near impossible to resist the temptation to click play.
More than 70 videos have been posted to his official YouTube page to date with more to follow soon, and we’ve compiled the most recently added clips including "Black Sweat" from Prince's 2006 album '3121' and the just-unearthed 1984 rehearsal footage of Prince & The Revolution soundtracked by his previously unreleased studio recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U," later made famous by Sinéad O'Connor in 1990.
