The Prince Estate Releases Original Studio Version of 'Nothing Compares 2 U' in Memory of His Passing

The Prince Estate is remembering the late icon two years after his death with a very special release.

The estate released the original version of “Nothing Compares 2 U” on Thursday (April 19), recorded in 1984 – six years before Sinead O’Connor‘s version.

The track was recorded at the Flying Cloud Drive ‘Warehouse’ in Eden Prairie by Prince‘s longtime engineer Susan Rogers, and originally created and performed by Prince.

The new version of the song is now available to stream, and comes with an official video featuring never-before-seen footage of Prince & The Revolution practicing choreography during 1984 in that same warehouse.

'Scandal' Creator Shonda Rhimes Explains Why She Felt Insulted by ABC During Season One

'Scandal' Creator Shonda Rhimes Explains Why She Felt Insulted by ABC During Season One

Shonda Rhimes is one of the most powerful producers working in television today, but when she pitched Scandal to ABC, the network didn’t seem to have full confidence in the show.

Shonda at the time had a huge hit on ABC with Grey’s Anatomy, but the network only gave Scandal a seven-episode first season instead of a full-season order.

“As somebody who had made a gigantic hit for a network, a hit that 14 seasons later, it is still a hit, to be given only seven episodes of a show that I made was a problem… To me it spoke to a lack of faith in the idea that a black woman could be the lead of a television show. And I found that to be insulting,” Shonda shared in a new interview with BuzzFeed.

Scandal will be coming to a close TONIGHT (April 19) at 10/9c. Make sure to watch the series finale live!

In other Shonda news, she is a big fan of the Apple Watch and wore the sleek accessory in a new Instagram photo that she posted this week.
