Watch Prince Cover David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’

Prince delivered a hits-filled set at the Essence Festival in New Orleans on Friday (July 4). But apparently that wasn’t going to be enough. Before his show, he warmed up for the show by sitting in with former Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers on a cover of David Bowie‘s ‘Let’s Dance.’

The video, embedded above, was found over at Consequence of Sound. Be sure to watch it soon because Prince has been known to get unauthorized footage of him taken down from YouTube pretty quickly.

Rodgers co-produced Bowie’s 1983 album of the same name. In addition to the No. 1 hit title track, ‘China Girl’ and ‘Modern Love’ reached the Top 20. ‘Let’s Dance,’ which introduced the world to guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, is Bowie’s most popular record to date, having sold an estimated 7 million copies worldwide. Rodgers has also produced albums by Jeff Beck and Mick Jagger.

After the show, Rodgers posted some pictures of him playing with Prince on his Facebook page, with the message, “How Proud Am I at This Moment? Playing “Let’s Dance” w Prince is so symbolic. That album w Bowie changed my life after Disco Sucks.”
