The song was on Prince’s fifth studio album entitled “Purple Rain” released in 1984 as well. But that wasn’t his only hit single – he has released many others, including “Batdance” (1989), “Kiss” (1986), “I Wanna Be Your Lover” (1978), and others.

When did Prince die?

Prince died on April 21, 2016 at his Paisley Park Studios compound near Minneapolis from an accidental overdose of Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid painkiller that authorities found in his body after he passed away. He was 57 years old when he died and he had been treated for a variety of issues related to drugs over his lifetime before that fateful day.

Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate on April 21, 2016, after law enforcement officials were called to the scene. He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m., according to a statement from the Carver County Sheriff's Office.

The singer's death sparked a massive outpouring of grief and tributes from fellow artists and fans across the world.

At the time of his passing, a rep for Prince told ET that he died at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota. The cause of death was initially announced as pending, but on June 2, the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office revealed Prince died from an accidental overdose of Fentanyl -- a synthetic opioid painkiller -- combined with alcohol. He also had what appeared to be prescription drugs in his system when he died.
