MPLS is a video by Minneapolis released for broadcast. The single received only a limited release through the 1-800 New Funk telephone service and The New Power Generation Stores in Minneapolis and London. The video also received only minimal airplay.
MPLS is the first video related to Prince to be treated as a cartoon. The four-piece band includes Sonny T., Jana Anderson, a DJ and Prince/ wearing a love symbol shirt.
The video contains brief footage from The Beautiful Experience TV-special and Lenny Kravitz’s Are You Gonna Go My Way video. Otherwise, the storyline is rather confuse.
The audio uses a different mix of the song MPLS with more samples, including an intro taken from Carmen Electra’s unreleased song Powerline.
