Prince has died at the age of 57.

Iconic funk/R&B artist Prince died today at his Minnesota Paisley Park estate, TMZ reports.

Prince’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.

The singer, whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson, suffered a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. It was reported that he was battling the flu.

He released his latest album, HITnRUN Phase One, on September 7th, 2015 as a Tidal exclusive before it was released on CD and download on September 14.

During his five decade-long career, Prince sold over 100 million records worldwide, received numerous accolades including: seven Grammy awards, a Golden Globe, and an Academy Award, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, his first year of his eligibility.
