"The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" is the lead single from Prince's 1995 album The Gold Experience. It was his first release since changing his stage name to an unpronounceable symbol. With the consent of Prince's usual record distributor Warner Bros. Records, "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" was released by NPG Records and Edel Music and independently distributed by Bellmark Records, under the control and guidance of Music of Life as a one-off single.
The single was released in February 1994 in the UK and remains Prince's only number-one single in the UK Singles Chart, and was shortly followed by an EP of remixes titled The Beautiful Experience that also charted at 18 in the UK chart. The version that was released on The Gold Experience is a different mix of the song.
