So, Prince has been doing these bonkers shows in New York City over the last month or so, playing all of his hits and bringing out guest stars/collaborators (Cyndi Lauper, Janelle Monae, etc.) On Tuesday, January 18, Prince tapped saxophonist Maceo Parker and the lovely Sharon Jones for a version of "Love Bizarre." (That was in the encore, even; the entire setlist from the show is below.) Jones and Prince get down together starting a bit after 1:10, and it's about as amazing as you would expect the collaboration to be. Check it out.
