Who sang kiss first prince or tom jones

Prince sang it first. The song "Kiss" was released by Prince & The Revolution in 1986. Art of Noise featuring Tom Jones released their version later in 1988.

Kiss is a 1986 song by Prince and the Revolution, from the album Parade. "Kiss" started as a short acoustic demo, about a minute in length, with one verse and the chorus. Prince gave the song to the funk band Mazarati for their debut album.

Mazarati and producer David Z. drastically reworked the song, giving it its unique raw funk and oddly effective stripped-down minimalist sound. When Mazarati delivered the song to Prince, he was amazed at their work and decided to take back the song for himself. He replaced their lead vocal, added the guitar break in the chorus and edited the song to its present form.

In latest buzz, the family of Prince say that seeing a huge archive of his memorabilia go on display in London “is like having him right there in front of us”. As final preparations were made for the O2 Arena show, the Standard was given a preview with the late singer’s sister Tyka Nelson and brothers Omarr Baker and Alfred Jackson.

The exhibition includes guitars, outfits, jewellery, shoes and hand-written lyrics, which have left Prince’s Paisley Park complex in Minnesota for the first time. Read more at Evening Standard.
