Looks like Prince has pulled a Beyonce. The enigmatic artist suddenly released his latest single, “What If?” Friday, with no advance warning.

“What If?” was released the day before Prince is scheduled to start his Hit & Run Tour, which was itself supposed to be a surprise until word leaked online. The tour, which will consist of surprise shows with his band 3rdEyeGirl, is scheduled to start Saturday in Louisville, Ky., Vulture reports.
