On April 21, 2016, our planet lost another legend in the music industry. Prince Rogers Nelson was found deceased in the elevator of his Minnesota home Thursday morning. He had previously been battling the flu, and the complications are believed to be the cause of this death.
Prince ruled the charts from the 70's to the 90's and will forever be the reason to party like it's 1999. Throughout his 30 years creating music, Prince won seven Grammys, an Oscar, five U.S. #1 hits, 39 albums, and 53 singles that charted. Prince was indeed a legend and holds a dear place in many of our hearts. Above, I have attempted to collect 10 of Prince's "Greatest Hits". Unfortunately, Prince never gave Spotify the rights to his music and I was unable to put together an actual playlist for you like I normally do, and instead linked to videos of his music videos and live performances. All you have to do in order to listen is click on the song titles above.
How have you been remembering Prince since you heard the news? How did his music affect your life? I would love to hear your stories in the comments below!
Rest in Purple, Prince. You will be dearly missed.
