New Memoir Reveals PRINCE Couldn't Stand The Music Of ED SHEERAN
Music legend Prince's recently-released memoir The Beautiful Ones has become a controversial piece for the late singer's choice words regarding the state of today's music.
On October 27, 1982, Prince released his groundbreaking double album 1999. The hits "Little Red Corvette," "1999" and "Delirious" introduced him to a massive audience of new fans, and were released at the dawn of an intensely prolific period of his early career. • 1999 was the third album that Prince wrote, recorded, and released that year. In August 1982, the second album from The Time, What Time Is It?, and the debut release from his girl group, Vanity 6, were released within weeks of one another. The three acts hit the road that winter for what became known as the "Triple Threat Tour," bringing Prince's Minneapolis Sound to cities across the United States. • In early 1983, the single "Little Red Corvette" broke through to become Prince's first Top 10 @billboard hit, and soon it was placed into rotation on the burgeoning music channel @mtv alongside videos for "1999" and "Delirious." By the end of the 1999 "Triple Threat" Tour, Prince was well on his way to becoming the global superstar we know him as today. • On November 29, listeners around the world will have a chance to hear the remastered album 1999 for the very first time, packaged alongside 35 previously unreleased tracks from Prince's legendary vault that showcase Prince's creative flow in this era.

In the memoir co-written by Dan Piepenbring, the "Purple Rain" hitmaker expressed his displeasure over the state of pop music prior to his death in 2016. He would then voice out his dislike of pop phenoms Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran who've been dominating the airwaves for years. "We need to tell them that they keep trying to ram Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran down our throats and we don’t like it no matter how many times they play it." Whoa there.
The eccentric singer-songwriter passed away in 2016 after a fatal drug overdose.
