Co-ownership of a rare Prince song being sold for $490,000

Chris Moon, one of Prince’s early collaborators, is selling his songwriting credit to the Purple One’s ‘Soft and Wet’.

Moon is listed as a co-writer on the track ‘Soft and Wet’, a song that was included on Prince’s debut album For You and was later sampled by MC Hammer. Now, Moon is selling his credits to the biggest bidder on eBay and has stated an asking price of $490,000. If you win the auction, Moon will transfer over the legal rights to the song to the buyer along with a copy of Moon’s original contract with Prince.

Also, Moon has agreed to include a digital copy of the original recording, the album version, and MC Hammer’s song: “I’ve had a lot of fun with this song over the years,” Moon told the Star Tribue. “Now, it’s somebody else’s turn.”
