The artist-again-known-as-Prince is jumping back into the spotlight in a big way. The 50-year-old musical prodigy, born Prince Rogers Nelson, is releasing three albums simultaneously, in addition to playing three L.A. shows in one day on March 28.
Talk about a full plate.

Prince has certainly always danced to his own drum, and has never been shy about promotion. There’s also no denying his remarkable talent as a musician and songwriter — whether or not you like him.
According to USA Today, he’ll be releasing three albums: LOtUSFLOW3R, MNPLSoUND and Elixer. Each has its own flavor, from raunchy rock riffs, to techno-flavored rock, to pop, the newspaper said. While initially available to subscribers to his website, the trio of albums will eventually be sold at Target stores.
In addition, NewsDaily.com reports that Prince will also play three shows in Los Angeles on March 28. The buzz on his website is that the shows will run from 7:30 p.m. and into the wee hours, with the last gig set to start at midnight.
Sounds like the man is serious about getting back on top of his game.
