Lianne La Havas claims it was ''like a storm had hit'' when Prince played an impromptu gig at her house on Tuesday (04.02.14).

The 24-year-old star saw her east London home turned into a concert venue when the 'Purple Rain' singer and his new band 3RDEYEGIRL bombarded her pad for his Hit & Run tour.

She explained: ''It's been a weird few hours but a lot of fun.

''They put amplified equipment in my lounge, Prince came, conquered and left. It was like a storm had hit.''

The 55-year-old star - who is playing a series of secret guerilla gigs at small venues across London throughout the month of February - performed two acoustic tracks in Lianne's front room, including new single 'PretzelBodyLogic'.

Lianne explained: ''His plan is music and music alone. He just wants to play and promote his new band and make a name for them.''

However, Prince's turn-up at Lianne's house wasn't completely out of the blue as the pair have met before.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Prince and I had hung out before in my old house, he enjoyed my music.

''I had always had music jams at my house, it's a way of having a conversation with musicians.

''So this was a way of Prince doing something he had never done - he just thought let's go back to basics.''
