Prince, the artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, died just a year ago, and Studio Brussel is memorializing the legendary musician with a purple Parental Advisory label that is currently being pitched to the Recording Industry Association of America. Instead of the standard black label, Studio Brussel has designed a purple version that uses the same bold font and content while honoring the late titan of rock and funk.
The Parental Advisory label is particularly pertinent to Prince's career. The label was in fact invented as a result of a Prince song, the famously graphic 'Darling Nikki.' The song, which includes the line "I knew a girl named Nikki; I guess you could say she was a sex fiend/I met her in a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine," caused an uproar in the industry and among parents, ultimately leading to the creation of the Parental Advisory label.
