Oh Purple One, your views on social media have changed so dramatically! Once, Prince (The Artist) wouldn’t deign to do anything on the World Wide Web, but no one is safe from the lure of the Internet. Not only does he now tweet at @3rdEyeGirl and Instagram, but he is working on a song that’s inspired by the #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin meme.

Yes, it is Prince who will bring this unstoppable meme to life.

When the craze hit its peak, one of the most popular photos was this shot from Purple Rain of Prince and Apollonia cruising on a motorcycle. Although the photo that Prince tweeted is slightly different, the song snippet he tweeted along with it plainly features the line “This could be us, but you playing.”
