"Breakfast Can Wait" is a song by American recording artist Prince. The single was released on 5 February 2013 on his website 3rdEyeGirl.com and was re-released on 3rdEyeTunes.com on 17 August 2013. The accompanying artwork for the song features comedian Dave Chappelle dressed as Prince and serving pancakes from a 2004 sketch from an episode of Chappelle's Show.[1][2][3][4] The artwork drew a lot of positive media attention for Prince, highlighting his sense of humor. It was likely due to this attention that the track was released as an official single on 3 September 2013.

A remix EP, titled The Breakfast Experience, followed on 24 October 2013 on iTunes and on Amazon the next day. It was made available on 3rdEyeTunes.com on 5 November 2013. The song is included on Prince's thirty-fourth studio album, Art Official Age, which was released on 30 September 2014.
