Just after the tribute to Prince during the Grammys, in which Bruno Mars performed, Google ran a new spot for its Pixel smartphone featuring various lesser-known musicians singing "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Included in the spot, by Droga5 New York, are Wye Oak/Flock Of Dimes' Jenn Wasner, Deer Tick's John McCauley, and Brandi Carlile, all singing lines from the Prince-penned ballad, famously recorded by Sinead O'Connor in the 1980s, in video clips recorded on the Google Pixel. The endline of the spot is "Tributes by you, phone by Google."
