Throwback: Hefner-Controversy



[youtube id=”z5Ed5KYrA_w”] German producer Hefner covered Prince’s “Controversy” for the 2001 tribute album If I Was Prince. The album is a collection of Prince covers from a variety of independent artists. UK label Rex Records released the project that only the most obscure Prince fans became aware of. Hefner’s version of “Controversy” featuring Josee on vocals is a downtempo lounge piece perfect for daydreaming. If I Was Prince is another testament to Prince’ influence on so many artists.
