DJDS continues to retool slow ballads for dancefloor escapades. Last month it was Adele's "Hello;" today the duo returns with a new version of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 You." Prince originally wrote the song during his wildly prolific '80s period when he was giving tunes away to a slew of affiliated acts, including the Time, the Bangles, Vanity 6, Apollonia 6, Sheena Easton, Sheila E, Andre Cymone, and the Family. "Nothing Compares 2 You" was popularized by Sinéad O'Connor, just as "I Feel For You," another Prince original, became a smash in the hands of Chaka Khan.
While Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 You" is tender and aching; the DJDS club mix puts a forceful twist on those heaps of melancholy. Listen below, and read Jerome LOL's Facebook post about the song's origins. Revisit DJDS' FADER interview.
