He's a better MC than he is a singer, this was not good on his part. I don't hate it because I'm against hip-hop, it just didn't work as a groove.

Not that bad to my ears, but there's not that much left of the original.

I can't really recall a good cover version of the song, in any case.

This one has a killer intro.

And overall not a horrendous rendition.

Some would say the whole film is off key.

His basic meleody is on key. The problem is he trills throughout the whole song.

It's like Christina A. on steroids, if that's not redundant.

Who ever produced this song should never work again.

Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. More like a revision with just the chorus sampled. Ya'll trippin'.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

This is the best cover. Someone needs to be Joey's ass. Please stop trying to ghettoize Prince's music.

The guitarist in the video is Harts!

It's a bit tragicomical that they didn't have him sing a Prince song. Not just because he's "an associated artist", but you know, because he can actually sing.
