“Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinéad O’Connor arrived in January of 1990 and took the world by storm, with the video receiving massive airplay on MTV. There’s perhaps no nineties ballad more touching.
Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” is an alternative pop masterpiece and an emotional performance that carries the listeners through a beautiful journey of loss, leaving one stunned by its sheer power of love’s expression.
The moving track took Sinéad’s small but devoted fan base and grew it by countless listeners around the world, but the artist claims that she had a struggle with the commercialization of her art. Nonetheless, she took the Grammy for Best Alternative Performance.
Sinéad O’Connor charted at number one in no less than seventeen countries around the world and kept its place atop the Hot 100 for four weeks straight.
