Prince’s hit, ‘1999,’ was re-released on February 2, 1999 to commemorate the namesake of the track. The album was officially featured on his album, 1999, in 1982.

 

The re-releasedย version of the track had similar success to its original release. The original release did not peak the charts without the help of ‘Little Red Corvette.’ The re-release had little marketing, no music video, and only reached #58 on Billboard R&B and #150 on Billboard U.S. Pop
