Prince’s Music Could Be Coming To Spotify

Legendary artist Prince may have passed away last year, but he’ll never be forgotten.

According to a new report from Star Tribune, new purple Spotify ads have begun appearing around New York and London, and unnamed sources from Billboard have hinted that his music is already in the process of making its way to the popular streaming service.

Though much of his catalog is currently tied up in legal struggles, his records released while under Warner Music are on the most solid ground to be streamed.

While Prince struck a deal with Jay Z‘s Tidal service in the year before his death that gave the company exclusive streaming rights to his music, Warner Bros. has contested the deal as being a short-term contract. Further, Tidal itself has been struggling to gain ground in the streaming market, lagging behind both Spotify and Apple Music and recently having a third of the company purchased by Sprint.

The lack of Prince music available for streaming, however, led to a huge boost in his sales following his death last April, and he ended up selling the most records of any artist in 2016 with 2.2 million albums sold.

Lets just hope we will all be able to enjoy his amazing works in the near future.
