To coincide with yesterday’s Grammy Awards, where Prince was remembered in a special tribute, The late singer’s music is now available on all streaming services. This ends over 18-months where his back catalog was only available on Jay Z’s subscription service Tidal.

The streaming deal was reached with Prince’s estate and covers streaming services including Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora.  All of his albums from 1978 to 1996 are now available.

The legend, who died in April 2016 at age 57, had previously removed his music from most streaming and digital music platforms back in 2015, with the exception of Tidal outlet. Prince was a huge advocate for musicians rights to be paid fairly, he famously attacked the music industry during a 1997 interview:  “If you don’t own your masters, then your masters own you”.

Warner Bros. Records chairman and CEO, Cameron Strang, remarked on the decision in a press release: “Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy. Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince’s music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music’s biggest night. We’d like to thank Prince’s estate, Universal Music Publishing, the Grammy Awards and all of the streaming services for their great collaboration in making this landmark event possible”.

The big four music streaming sites have all taken to Twitter to celebrate the move:

Spotify

Apple Music

Amazon Music:

Pandora:

Prince’s music being available has received mix reception from Twitter, with some people excited about getting the chance to listen to the tunes and others questioning whether this is what Prince would have actually wanted:
