Last week, Prince took to Twitter for the first time in his career to share a preview of his new track "Groovy Potential." Yesterday, the newly tech-savvy Purple One gave his followers something even better: the hilarious artwork for upcoming single "Breakfast Can Wait," which features comedian Dave Chappelle dressed as Prince.

This is not the first time Chappelle has impersonated Prince, as fans of his mid-2000s Chappelle's Show will recall, but "Breakfast Can Wait" is certainly the first Prince-approved instance of this, revealing the music legend's ability to poke fun at himself.

Goofy artwork aside, Prince also shared a short preview of "Breakfast Can Wait," which you can stream above. Though less than a minute in length, the track's off-kilter beat and funky instrumentation is enough to worm its way into ears and demand repeat listens. The title "Breakfast Can Wait" becomes even more hilarious when you listen to Prince's lyrics and realize, 'of course, this song is about morning sex.'

Prince has been on Twitter for less than a week and he's already given us two phenomenal new tracks and revived Dave Chappelle's career as an impersonator of '80s funk icons. Bravo sir.

Like "Groovy Potential," the full version of "Breakfast Can Wait" is available on Prince's new website for 88 cents.
