100.3 The Q! To Simulcast Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ (Wed. May 4 @3:07pm)

A Minneapolis radio station has invited radio stations across North America to pay tribute to the legendary Minneapolis native by joining in a simulcast of Prince’s version of Nothing Compares 2 U. Prince wrote the song in the mid-’80s which Sinead O’Connor covered and went on to have a massive hit.

KCMP (89.3 The Current) Minneapolis came up with this simulcast idea to air Prince’s recording at exactly 3:07 PT on Wednesday May 4.

It marks “7 hours and 13 days” since Prince’s death on April 21st, referencing the song’s opening lyric.

“It’s been 7 hours and 13 days, since you took your love away,” Prince’s version begins. “I go out every night and sleep all day, since you took your love away …”

Sinead O’Connor’s version changed the time span to “7 hours and 15 days.”

Besides 100.3 The Q! in Victoria, other stations reportedly confirmed to join the Minneapolis station in the simulcast are WFUV New York, WXPN Philadelphia and KEXP Seattle.

You can get involved via social media, too. Tweet, Facebook or Instagram clips of yourself singing along, or use the hashtag #NothingCompares2U.

Thanks to Billboard online for sharing this story.
