The Flashback song today was released in 1991 by Prince. “Diamonds and Pearls” made it to #1 on the US Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart and #8 on the Canadian RPM Album Charts. It’s a great song even Rapper Lil Wayne sampled it on his mix-tape Da Drought, with the term “Diamonds & Girls.”
R&B artist and Voice coach Alicia Keys and her finalist Chris Blue covered the song on The Voice season 12 finale and it was amazing. Marcin Wasilewksi the Polish jazz pianist and his trio also included an instrumental version of “Diamonds and Pearls” on their 2008 ECM album called January.
