There has been plenty of reporting in the regular music press etc. And a million views in one day is a decent number, but peanuts compared to plenty others.




It's the #1 trending video on YOUTUBE for 2 days now...

Says who? https://www.youtube.com/feed/trending disagrees. Note how the new Jurassic World trailer did 10x the views of NC2U in a day.

Yep, that did just happen. Bart compared a $100million Hollywood blockbuster trailer to footage of a 30 plus year old Prince rehearsal in order to diminish it.

Honestly, I think I'm well past the 10th.
It made me spend the night awake.



yeahthat makes me wonder how many of those are repeat listens/views from us versus viewers from casual fans wink


Nah, it's one IP per session.
We are approaching a million and a half unique viewers.

Undisputable truth Bart's a fan: he can do mental splits.

I am crying at my desk at work and people are worried about me. I am still hurting, but I am also very happy and content. I always thought the vault was full of things that he did not like, and were unfinished projects and ideas. I have always associated the vault with "dark"things. But OMG, this shows how much life is in there! Not just this beautiful song, but to see him happy, having fun doing what he loved to do, gives me an extra sense of peace with it all now. He got to do what he loved his entire life. What a gift this has been, just to see him smiling.

Thanks to whoever was involved in this.

Bart doesn't know what trending is... He's a little past the prime for social media... lol Lets see if we can teach an old dog new tricks.

YouTube calculates trending based on view count, but also hashtag (popularity) interactions on various social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

"The video with the highest viewcount may not necessarily be #1 on trending"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZmGmkOJ9ME

.... So yes Bart, NOTHING COMPARES 2 U was the #1 trending video in the world in YouTube yesterday, and currently at #2 today.

People in the comments are blown away by Prince's dancing skills. Just another side of Prince most didn't know about.

I like these quotes.

"Only a handful of musicians can write multiple hit singles. Only a handful of musicians can play flawless lead guitar. Only a handful of musicians have an octave range of G1 to G7. Only a handful of musicians can move like an acrobat. VERY few musicians can do any of these things WELL. Prince did them all... At. The. Same. Time. His genius is unequaled."

"I used to think Tina and Beyonce were the best dancers in heels , Prince was better than them both ."

Nice! I like when someone will say "but YADDA YADDA is a better [whateves] player than Prince.." and I am all "yeah well can he play the what's it and the thingie too?" "durp well no...but..."

I love these two comments, thank you for sharing them. The first one in particular - that’s Prince. Only Prince.

This official release contains snippets of Claire Fischer's orchestration, but it's buried really low in the mix. I wish there was some additional documentation released about what date this recording or mix was from, so we can know at what point it fits into the timeline. Was this a 2-track tape that they found or was it a multitrack? It's really the fact that the strings are so low that makes me really curious.

Correction-- I now see that it is claimed to have been a multitrack they took this from.

All I have to say to that is...just let it be. Also avoid conjecture saying stuff like ‘Prince would have...’ really doesn’t provide any substance to your arguement. databank said:

Something is at long last happening and hopefully more will come. This is real good news and I thank the estate, WB and the Nelson family for that hug.

.

Now I'll be honest, I don't wanna spoil the party or bitch at the Estate or WB, let alone Prince's family, but I think certain things raise questions or could be improved.

.

- I suspect Prince would have been infuriated by the video, in the sense that the pictures aren't syncronized to the music, and he looks like a fool moving, singing and dancing in a vacuum like that. I find this really embarrassing sad I understand and respect how and why it was meant respectfully, as well as how and why some may find it moving, but I personally find it quite disrespectful as such. I think it would be more respectful to release videos with their original sound on one hand and, on the other hand, to make lyrics videos or cartoons or whatever else if they need new promo videos for posthumous releases.

.

- The sound quality on NC2U has issues that makes me question the "vault multitracks" story, particularly after the suspiscious circumstances around Moonbean Level and PR Deluxe, allegedly sourced from mere cassettes. And we needn't forget the rumor that the vocals on the original multi-tracks had been erased when Paul's were recorded (I believe Alan Leeds is the source but I'm not sure, it could also be a mere urban legend). Now I don't wanna call anyone a liar: if they say it's from the vault, then OK. I'm just saying the lack of transparency surrounding PR Deluxe makes everything suspiscious. I'm cool with the estate releasing cassettes if they can't find any multitracks for any specific song, I just believe it'd be really positive to just tell us what the source for each recording is from now on, so no doubt is left.

.

- I also can't help wondering whether the edit that's on the physical release is an original edit from 1985, or something made for this specific release. I don't wanna throw accusations but I wish this had been clearly stated. I would rather not see any posthumous edits or remixes. Just please leave it all as such. And again, there's the suspiscious Our destiny/Roadhouse Garden precedent.

.

- The discography site is a great initiative (I, of all people, would have to be insane to say the contrary), but some info regarding credits has clearly been taken, as such, from Princevault. I find it awesome that they've taken the effort to look for real credits as opposed to just copying the official credits on the booklets (or writing nonsense as on PR Deluxe), but I think it'd be respectfuil to credit Princevault when they borrow info from them, given the hard work done by Pvault (and I, for one, know how much time those volunteer projects require). Pvault has a Creative Commons licence that requires credits to be given. The site is also hard to navigate and detailed album infos could be more accurate but I'm sure this can, and will be improved on the long run. Not everything has to be perfect on day 1

.

So in the ends, I'll say again that I don't mean to bitch: I realize that the estate has an incredible responsibility, to honor the legacy of one of our times' most significant artist while satisfying an extremely demanding fanbase. I welcome those new initiatives and the promise for more that's been made, and I'm glad they chose to commemorate Prince's passing that way. I just believe fans can help by giving feed-back and advices because, with all due respect, we can all work together to be the best possible "singular, authoritative source on all things Prince" (to quote the website's bold statement).

Ok, this is just unfair. He's doing all that 14 hours a day. And if you look at his shape from 2:48-2:53, he is built grandiose. Great back, amazing arms and those legs would got some muscles on them too. Because he would have gotten them legs naturally built with the dance moves. And for all women out there, calves grows quick when you walk high heels. HE DIDN'T WALK HIGH HEELS, HE "TRAINED" IN THEM! SPEECHLESS. AGAIN. eek cool

That was a very calculated move. Not sure how I feel about it. Releasing the video almost at the same time as the police releases the horrible clip, and we know they stopped the investigation. At the same time I guess they just found out that they have to do it to keep his name hot. The song is powerful though! I love it <3
