Maxwell Sings ‘Lake By The Ocean’, Tributes Prince With ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ Performance at 2016 BET Awards

Maxwell is definitely back.

He brought his single “Lake By The Ocean” to the 2016 BET Awards with a wet performance. Underneath an umbrella, the crooner sang the cool soul song in front of rain graphics.

He then transitioned into Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2U,” making this the third tribute of the night for the late music icon.  He flipped the lyrics to suit the tribute: “It’s been 7 hours and 66 days since you took your music away,” “I went to the record store, Apple, Spotify too, and they told me ‘Boy you’d better try to make some music, which you can’t do –’cause Prince is the truth!”
