The masters lascivious R&B lies at its core, but theres an EDM flirtation thats endlessly intriguing.

The album also features appearances by Rita Ora, Lianne La Havas, sister duo Curly Fryz and Judith Hill, whose work with Prince on her own solo LP resulted in a lawsuit. This album shows that Prince had so much more to offer, hence HITNRUN Phase two and who knows what else could have been forthcoming. Enjoy Read more. I find the album thoroughly consistent and enjoyable. It is nice to see Prince allowing another producer Joshua Welton assist with defining his current visiondirection of his music. The album grew on me instantly. A writer from the New York Post stated, HITNRUN is the most aggressive and progressive set of songs the musician has put his name to in many years. I have to agree with him. The cartoon album art of Prince's HITnRUN: Phase One echoes the cover portrait on its 2014 predecessor Art Official Age, a deliberate move suggesting this 2015 set is either a cousin or perhaps a reboot, questions the EDM revision of This Could Be Us here titled This Could B Us doesn't put to bed. Prince consciously reconnected with his '80s work on Art Official Age, a nice wink for his return to Warner Bros. but HITnRUN covers similar territory in an edgy, impatient fashion, suggesting he wasn't thrilled by the 21st century indifference greeting

The artwork on this album looks like Prince made it himself on Microsoft Paint!!
Prince did the "I want to sound contemporary" thing at many stages of his career. Here is the 2015 version of that misguided-ness.Prince trying to sound like Justin Timberlake is just plain sad, for such a talented artist.He lost his way long before this of course, but this album serves as his ultimate "I need to be relevant" low-point.
Twice was enough, thanks. Sounds too much like current top 40 fodder. A sad attempt to pander to that audience. I will stick with his 80's & early 90's material. I like the FUNK.
totally disagree. listen to it a few times more. outside of track one, its an amazing album. fresh, short, sharp and focused.
What is the reasoning to ban the sale of the LP versions of this just because they are bootlegs. There are bootlegs of all kinds of things on discogs. Why is this particular title not allowed??
Now, this is an album that is really exciting, if only for the fact that it shows Prince experimenting with new (for him) styles of music and his own interpretation of today’s chart-style music, something that was hinted at with Art Official Age, with P letting Josh Welton loose on the production. It was the kind of album that wasn’t just enjoyable, but really fun, to listen to.‘Million $ Show’ is a great opening track, getting the listener hyped for what’s to come. ‘Shut This Down’ has a style reminiscent of ‘My Name Is Prince’ but with a modern twist, which ends up sounding like a Lil Wayne song. ‘Ain’t About 2 Stop’ has some really interesting production, tinged with dubstep, with some Arabian-style strings and some seriously groovy vocal melodies from P and Rita Ora. I never thought I’d hear “If ur not a Rita-bot, ur a bloodclaat” (patois slang for a tampon) on a Prince album in 2016, that’s for sure!‘Like A Mack’ is the kind of pop song you would expect to hear on the radio today, with Curly Fryz trying really hard to sound like Nicki Minaj. ‘This Could B Us’ is a remix of the Art Official Age track, which is interesting, but probably would have worked better as a Purple Pick on Tidal (lol) rather than being included on an album.‘Fallinlove2nite’ is a bit disappointing as it’s not a remix like the previous track, but the same as the single version (without Zooey Deschanel, which actually sounds better). The song itself a still a great pop tune, and it’s nice for it to have found a home on this album. ‘X’s Face’ is a great track, similar in vein to ‘Ain’t About…’, but with a stronger dubstep flavour, and the vocal melody sitting perfectly on-beat making it sound so funky. Again, this version is the same as the one previously released, so is still a bit too short. ‘Hardrocklover’ has absolutely fantastic production, with less of an electronic feel than the rest of the album and some blistering guitar from Prince in the choruses.‘Mr. Nelson’ is a nice little instrumental, with samples of Lianne La Havas from ‘Clouds’ and some reggaeton beats. ‘1000 X’s & 0’s’ is a new take of a vault track, previously heard as ‘1,000 Hugs & Kisses’ with Nona Gaye on vocals. This new version has Prince’s vocals and a more funky, but still laidback, sound. The closing track, ‘June’, is probably the most interesting track on the album, and seems to be a fan favourite. Imagine One Nite Alone… remixed by FKA Twigs. I would love to hear a whole album from Prince in this style.TL,DR = HITnRUN P1 is a nice companion to Art Official Age, containing some remixes (TCBU, Mr. Nelson) and outtakes from the album. It’s a really interesting collection, but may not be to everyone’s taste as it’s content is quite obviously aimed at a younger Top 40 audience. Many tracks, and the album itself, had the potential to be huge hits. But of course, in true Prince fashion, it never received the right promotion, and will one of many Prince albums to fade into obscurity.
this is the first album from Prince that i don't like. whenever he sings, or plays, it is great, but when the other guy plays it is simply wack. he has absolutely no feeling for music. his notes are so simple and stupid, that anybody will make them up as the first decision. my wife said "this guy has bought some new children type of synthesizer". On the Art Official Age it was more balanced, so it was sounding new and still good, but here it is just an album featuring Prince, and what the main guy plays here i simply don't like at all.
Have no idea what you mean by "Other Guy". In any case, the album is weak because it's Prince basically trying to sound like Justin Timberlake. Just plain PATHETIC.
Its alright. This album sees Prince experiementing with dubstep and different arrangements than his own. Sometimes it works (Shut This Down, X's Face) as a whole it never really takes off. While there are generally good songs on here (1000 Hugs & Kisses remake, June, FallinLove2Nite) there seems to be something lacking as a whole. Some of it wants to be a extended LP from Art Official Age (This Could Be Us, Mr Nelson, X's Face was an outtake from that album), the thematic and newness in arrangement that was on Plectrum and Art Official Age is not here. it plays more like a collection of songs than a statement. A hit and run. Get your screams and be out. Bring on Phase 2.
I tried, I tried, and I tried, but I just couldn't get with the complete album....Everybody knows that I am a Prince guy (in fact I killed it for my wife the first couple of years of our marriage), and I have everything since 1978 (and I mean EVERYTHING!!!!!), but half of this record is exactly what I continue to complain about the sound of today's music. Now half of the album is Very Excellent!!!! Songs like "Million $ Show", June, and the best song on the album, "1000 X's & O's" are perfect for Prince going into the future of a sound that he wants to achieve. Trust me, I get it, you don't always want to sound the same, but after the fantastic "Art Official Age", I was just looking for much better.
Fantastic follow up to 2014's Art Official Age. There's no stopping this man. Prince dabbles in Electro Funk, Rock, Dub Step, Pop R&B and Dance to create yet another genre defying album. This piece of work is short and punchy, coming in at under 40 minutes. Prince's vocals sound on-point, sounding so energised, fresh and far younger than his years. All the tracks segue into each other and the outcome is spectacular.
agree. I luv this album althought track one is the weakest and probably puts some people off
WHAT IS "Spectacular" about Prince trying to copy current top 40 garbage?
