Prince's "Dance 4 Me" is still in the top ten British Dance Charts after a week at number 1 last week.
The song has dropped to number 6 but is still in heavy rotation on radio stations overseas. He is ahead of Skrillex, the soon to be king of the dance charts in the U.S. and kept David Guetta out of the number 1 spot til this week.

For the Purple Music label to do this with no real promotion from Prince and no video is somewhat of a testament. Yes, it is not US charts let alone pop charts, but the Purple Music Label is a dance label...and they got him to number 1.
They are releasing remixes of "2nite" by Bria Valente on Feb. 23rd. Bria is a Prince protege and is from her 2009 album, "Elixir" which was packaged with Prince's latest CD at the time, Lotusflow3r.
It would be nice if US radio stations were not so monopolized and would have given Prince a fair shake. The man cannot get any of his new stuff on mainstream radio because of that and also not dealing with major record labels. When he does deal with major labels, it is for distribution and since Prince keeps his masters and a majority of the profits, there is not enough push to get him on radio as there would be with someone new in the game that they can make a huge profit off of.
So, props to Prince for being able to hit number 1 on the British Dance Charts. It shows when the system is fair, anyone can dance. For you. Or for me.-DocFB
