While there are other serious contenders vying to snag the collection, sources say the rapper is the top prospect. In fact, the father already met with Prince's sister Tyka Nelson and her husband Maurice Philips to discuss the sale.

As for how much dough the New Yorker is willing to throw down, insiders claim the figure is around $40 million. Talk about a nice chunk of change!

The only catch is, Tyka has to get the OK from her other siblings and the manager of Prince's estate before she can sell the collection. Not to mention there are plenty of other interested buyers in the game.

We'll keep you updated as this major deal progresses!

Say so long to The Weeknd's luscious locks… and hello to his new album!

On Wednesday, the soulful singer took to social media to reveal the title and artwork (above) for his upcoming record, as well as a shorter hairstyle!

The Nabil-shot photo for the album, titled Starboy, features the Canadian crooner — and his new 'do — sitting in front of a pink background with his hands on his head and a cross around his neck.

This exciting unveiling was so important to the 26-year-old that he completely wiped ALL posts from his Instagram account a couple days ago in preparation!

In fact, his last post before the IG cleanse cryptically read:

"This my last post before the new era. Happy birthday to the legend @lamarctaylor, wouldn't be here without the vision. Let's shut Toronto down tonight. XO."

…and, this "era" isn't just referring to his hair.

Earlier this month, the hitmaker told VMAN all about his new muses for the project, and promised Starboy would be his best release yet, saying:

According to the StarTribune, some fans who logged on right at 10 a.m. — when tickets became available on Ticketmaster — were greeted with this message:

"No tickets but keep trying. Other fans may have reserved and released seats!"

We can't say we're surprised how quickly the October 13 show sold out, considering the lineup includes Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day and the Time, Judith Hill, and Liv Warfield.

On Ticketmaster, prices ranged from $19.99 to $152.50, and already ticket holders are trying to flip their passes on sites like Stubhub and SeatGeek for a pretty steep profit.

The stars will take the stage at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota next month to honor the iconic artist.
