Composition advice from Prince

Here’s a nifty nugget from an unexpected place.  From Elle Magazine’s cover story comes a quote by Gwen Stefani recalling some advice that Prince gave her:

Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.”

A worthy goal for any composition endeavor.
