"Kiss" is a 1986 single by Prince and The Revolution, from the album Parade.
Despite Warner Bros. not wanting to release it as a single, "Kiss" became Prince's third number-one U.S. hit following 1984's highly successful "When Doves Cry" and "Let's Go Crazy". It was also a big hit across the Atlantic, reaching #6 on the UK Singles Chart. The song won Prince another Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group, and was nominated for Best Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Song. The song has become a staple at Prince's concerts and is usually sung partially by the audience.
The music video is directed by Rebecca Blake. In the plot of the video, Prince performs dance choreography in a hall accompanying with the veiled dancer Monique Manning wearing a black lingerie, aviator sunglasses while Revolution member Wendy Melvoin is sitting playing guitar.
The song ranked #464 on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. NME ranked the song #4 in their list of The 150 Greatest Singles of All Time.
