Watch out, Prince! Looks like someone is trying to come for your “purple” crown.

Black America Web reports that Musiq Soulchild announced a new musical alter ego named “Purple” via his Twitter. Purple, he said, is “a folk/soul singer songwriter, something like a cross between Bob Marley and Sade, who sings about peace and love!!!”

The HalfCrazy crooner unveiled this Purple character during a show at the Greenwood in Atlanta last Tuesday.//
