While the world is grieving the death of music icon Prince many are saying that perhaps the singer planned out the last few months of his death. It’s seems too coincidental that the singer was on ,now what is being called a farewell tour with just a mic and a piano. Also in the last months leading to his death Prince inked a landmark deal that would give his all the rights to his songs with Warner Brothers, as well as start on a memoir of his life.

Was he putting his final business affairs in order? Although he released a new album this years, it revealed no clues that he was aware that he would die soon.

Prince has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He won seven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award,[4] and an Academy Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, the first year of his eligibility. Rolling Stone ranked Prince at number 27 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Prince was found dead this morning at his Minnesota home. While it may have come as a surprise to many of his fans, it seems as though the singer may have seen it coming.

“Sources connected with Prince tell us, they were surprised he started the project… something he had been mulling over for years but not acting upon,” TMZ reports. “We’re told he had finished around 50 pages at the time of his death.” Authorities say no foul play has been suspected.

The news followed a disturbing incident on April 15, when the “Purple Rain” singer’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Illinois after he performed his Atlanta concert. The week before his initial show he canceled after experiencing flu-like symptoms, however the singer was released from the hospital.

Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson in 1958, was the son of singer John Nelson, who died in 2001, and mom Mattie Shaw.

As the family gather in Minnesota to make his final funeral arraignments, it is without a doubt that there will be tributes made in Prince’s honor. Whether performances are held individually by artists who admired the star or official tributes are made at awards shows, the legend will not be forgotten.
