Sampha Covers Prince in Google’s Latest Pixel Ad

Bruno Mars paid homage to Prince during the 59th annual Grammy awards this past Sunday, and so did Google, who aired a tribute of their own. The powerhouse called upon the likes of Sampha, Brandie Carlile, and a number of other artists to perform their unique covers of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” a Prince-penned track sung by Sinead O’Connor. While the minute long ad for the Google Pixel doesn’t quite showcase its capabilities, it does display a slew of raw talent. Watch the commercial above and read up on the smartphone here.
