Dave Chappelle plays Prince on new single’s cover

Dave Chappelle, who’s suddenly everywhere again (and welcome back, sir!), is on the cover of the latest Prince single, “Breakfast Can Wait.” It’s only fitting, given that the Purple One, like Chappelle, is also known for his reclusiveness and inscrutability – and, thanks to a new Twitter account, is suddenly back in the media swim.

The cover of “Breakfast Can Wait” features Chappelle in his “Chappelle’s Show” Prince regalia, holding a plate of pancakes. It’s no “Breakfast in America,” but in this MP3 age, it’s all about the music anyway, right?

And the music, given the short sample that’s been posted, sounds like Prince at his funky best.

We look forward to a rematch of Shirts vs. Blouses.
