The opening line of one of Prince’s most beloved compositions has sparked a tribute to the late icon, scheduled to air on radio stations worldwide tomorrow. KCMP (89.3 The Current) Minneapolis has invited stations around the country to fete the legendary Minneapolis native by joining in a simulcast of Prince’s version of “Nothing Compares 2 U”, which he wrote in the 1980’s and Sinead O’Connor took to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks in 1990. Prince’s version reached No. 62 on the R&B/Hip Hop Songs in 1994. KCMP, and others, will air Prince’s recording of “Nothing Compares 2 U” at exactly 5:07 p.m. CT (6:07 ET/3:30 PT) tomorrow. Why that specific time? It marks 7 hours and 13 days since Prince’s April 21 death, referring to the song’s opening lyric. Among other stations confirmed to take part in the simulcast are WFUV New York, WXPN Philadelphia and KEXP in Seattle. People are encouraged to listen via a local station or stream thecurrent.org/listen, as well as tweet, Facebook, or Instagram photographs of themselves singing along using the hashtag #NothingCompares2U. Rapper Young Thug paid homage to Prince during a sold out concert at Hy!LUN35 (pronounced High Tunes), in New York City. During his set, the MC yelled “lights out for Prince”, at which time purple lights came up. Dressed in a white shirt and skinny jeans while holding a microphone with the signature love symbol in black, the Atlanta native was also flanked by two large cardboard cutouts of Prince and Michael Jackson. Images of Prince, one holding a guitar, the other with purple lighting shooting out of his finger, were also projected on stage. Prince’s face was even transformed into Thug’s, indicating that the rapper seeks to become an icon himself one day. The rapper went on to perform his best known singles whipping the crowd into a frenzy. Producer Just Blaze has been relatively quiet on the production front in recent years, trading life in the studio for life on the road. However, the New Jersey native has made a huge splash with his work on Beyoncé’s single “Freedom”, featuring Kendrick Lamar. Blaze is eager to get back into the studio after a European tour ends. That process may have already begun. Last month, rapper Snoog Dogg posted a video of himself in the studio with Blaze and rapper Nipsey Hu$$le, implying that a new album is on the way. According to Blaze, he and the West Coast hip hop icon, who first collaborated on the hit “Lollipop” in 2002, are working extensively on the project. No formal announcement has been made regarding a release date so stay tuned.
