How to listen to Prince's music online

The Purple One's music can't be streamed just anywhere.

The shocking news of Prince's death has fans, new and old, turning to their Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music apps, only to find them barren of his hits. Unfortunately, your options for streaming the music of His Royal Badness are limited.

Last year The Purple One removed his music from popular streaming music sites, save for one: Tidal. You can stream his latest and greatest on Tidal and, if you don't have an account, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial.

Looking to buy? Prince's albums are available to download from iTunes and Amazon Music.

Additionally, if you have a library card, you can sign up for Hoopla to access some of his classic albums. Just like the library, it's free.

If watching Purple Rain is what you're in the mood for, the movie is available for rent or download at Google Play, Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.

Prince's brilliance wasn't limited to his own art; he also collaborated with other musicians on their hits. Below is a Spotify playlist with some of them.
