If you missed it live on the radio this morning, rapper Joey Bada$$ honoured Prince with his own unique version of The Purple One’s hit single ‘When Doves Cry’ for triple j‘s Like A Version covers segment.
Joey told triple j the cover was meant to be on his latest album “All-Amerikkkan Badass”, but he couldn’t get the samples cleared in time to have it on the record.
This unexpected cover will definitely be a contender for next year’s Hottest 100 Countdown. Don’t you agree?
Joey Bada$$ will perform in Melbourne tonight as part of his 2018 Australian tour, before hitting up Sugar Mountain festival over the weekend.
