"Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor.

OK, more 90's one-hit wonders: Prince wrote this '90 ballad for one on his protegee bands. It was instead recorded by a controversial Irish singer/songwriter - her only chart hit. Prince did not participate in the production of the record or its video, causing quite a rift between the two of them. Won a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Performance and earned 2 other nominations - she boycotted the ceremony. Topped the charts in 17 countries and is ranked #162 among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: Nicanor Zabaleta. One of my Dad's faves. He elevated the harp to a higher level much like Segovia did with the classical guitar.
