Crazy, but true: in the grips of a somewhat belated midlife crisis, the 61-year-old heir to the British throne has left it all behind to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming The Greatest R&B singer of all time. OK, OK, I lied – as you’ve probably guessed, the man responsible for this newly-leaked mixtape cut is not Charles, Prince of Wales but Prince Charlez, the Island Def Jam crooner previously heard on West Coast State of Mind. On his second feature, the Compton up-and-comer takes aim at a woman who could have been the love of his life, had she kept faith in him and not walked out of the relationship. Backed by the tense, electric guitar-laced boardwork of ATL’s Jaylien2010, Charles delivers a bitter kiss-off to the girl in question, acknowledging that he’s been hurting since she left but making clear that she’s blown her chance for good. Is this moody breakup jam fit for a king? That, Booth readers, is for you to decide. Those digging it can look forward to more fresh tunes on Prince Charles’ Crowned Royalty mixtape, scheduled to drop sometime in October.
