Some people have an incredible knack for recognising songs quickly, and we reckon when it comes to Prince The Root’s Questlove is king.
Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show in the guest’s chair to promote his new book Creative Quest – requiring a quick amble across the studio from his usual spot in the band area – Questlove was challenged by the host to name Prince songs from mere one second snippets of their intros.
He totally owned it.
Fallon then stepped things up with half-second and quarter-second grabs. As we said, the man is king.
