Prince (Protégé) Summer: Támar, Bria Valente, Andy Allo, and Judith Hill

For my last installment of Prince (Protégé) Summer on Andresmusictalk, I focused on a handful of young women with whom Prince was associated during the last decade or so of his life: Támar Davis, Bria Valente, Andy Allo, and Judith Hill. As I note in the post, I don’t especially love his collaborations with any of these latter-day protégées (especially Bria Valente, blah). But I think it’s interesting that toward the end of his life, Prince seemed to become more generous and less overtly controlling with his collaborators; it makes for a bittersweet end to the series, and it’s something I look forward to exploring in more detail on this blog. Anyway, here’s the link:

Again, we’ve got one more take on For You next week, then I’m officially (finally!) moving on. Later!
