Prince’s music is now officially able to be streamed from apps like Spotify, YouTube, etc.

Ever since the singer’s death on April 21, 2016, fans have been left to wait for his music to be re-released after all of his music was taken off the internet.

Tidal Wave was in command of Prince’s music since the singer’s death, until last weekend when their contract ended. As of now, the music is out for stream indefinitely, and was intentionally released the same day as the Grammys. A tribute during the Grammys also took place, performed by Bruno Mars and the Time. They did a spectacular rendition of “Let’s Go Crazy,” one of Prince’s songs.

Prince was very protective of his music, and before his death he choose Tidal Wave to exclusively stream his music. Though he didn’t have a will before he died, decisions were made by his estate. In November, the estate sued Tidal Wave for their exclusive streaming rights.

According to, Warner Bros. Records plans to remaster Purple Rain, one of the things he was working on before he died. They also plan on releasing “two albums of unreleased music and two concert films from his Paisley Park vault.” They will be released on June 9th.
