The Most Played Prince Tracks of the 21st Century Revealed


To celebrate the life and works of Prince (7 June 1958 – 21 April 2016), music licensing company PPL has released an official chart of the Most Played Prince Tracks of the 21st Century.

Aggregated using PPL’s exclusive UK airplay data, the chart collates those Prince tunes which have been played in public (in pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, offices and many other business types) as well as broadcast on TV and radio, since the year 2000.

Prince died on April 21st 2016 at his home at Paisley Park, after he became unresponsive and an ambulance was called.

1999, the title track from Prince’s 1982 album of the same name, tops the chart, with one of the most well know hits Purple Rain only featuring at No.7 although this is likely to change in the next year.
