This morning the opening line of one of Prince’s most famous song’s served as the trigger to pay tribute to the legendary musician right round the world. 

The first line of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ begins with the lyric: “It’s been 7 hours and 13 days” and at 8.07am it was exactly 7 hours and 13 days since Prince passed away.

(Sinead O’Connor famously changed the line to ‘Fifteen Days’ in her version as she was superstitious) 

Jonesy & Amanda wanted to be part of this amazing simulcast that happened on thousands of radio stations around the world playing the Purple One’s track that has now taken on even greater significance since he left us. 

The hastag #7hours13days was also hugely popular on social media as fans including Madonna payed their respects.


Listen to Jonesy & Amanda paying tribute above and then enjoy an amazing live performance by Prince below.

If you can’t get enough of the song, here’s Sinead O’Connors’s version with the slightly altered lyrics.
