Throwback: The Foreign Exchange-Purple Flip Featuring Questlove, Zo! & Carlitta Durand


[youtube id=”MQDHFgzbZCs”] The Foreign Exchange, Questlove, Zo! and Carlitta Durand recorded “Purple Flip” which is their version of Prince’s “Take Me With U” in 2009.  The song was created specifically for a Prince tribute party that Questlove was having and he only gave it to a few DJ friends. According to Nicolay, after the passing of Michael Jackson in June of 2009 the song became even more important to them because they wanted to celebrate Prince and others like him while they were still alive. They did their job by honoring Prince while he was alive and one can only hope that he actually heard “Purple Flip” and smiled knowing once again how much his music means to so many people including another generation of artists.
