Nothing Compares 2 U is a ballad originally written by Prince and made famous by Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor in 1990.
It was again covered in 2016 by American singer-songwriter Chris Cornell, best known as the lead vocalist for the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave.
He posted a link of him performing the song, as a tribute, on the day after Prince’s death.
