Potential Prince comeback planned for Spotify

The late singer's back catalogue is rumoured to be returning to the streaming service

It's rumoured that Prince's back catalogue could be returning to streaming services Spotify and Apple Music next month to coincide with this year's Grammy Awards.

For nearly two years, the late musician’s discography has only been available to stream on Tidal. However, the company’s exclusivity is set to come to an end in time for the Grammy Awards, which take place on February 12th.

Spotify has begun teasing purple-themed advertising across America in the apparent lead-up to the announcement and the prestigious awards ceremony.

Billboard Magazine reports that Prince’s estate are nearing a deal to bring the star’s music to other streaming services, with an announcement likely to be broadcast during a Grammys tribute to the Purple One. The Weeknd, Rihanna and Bruno Mars have been discussed or approached for performances, according to Billboard‘s source.

Last year, Prince's estate sued Tidal for apparently breaching their deal, claiming that only his latest album ‘HitNRun Phase’ was included in the streaming agreement.
