We just hope there isn’t a connection.
The 57-year-old recorded 39 studio albums, leaving behind a vast musical legacy. However, in one of his most famous songs Let’s Go Crazy, there are lyrics that coincidentally describe how he passed.
In the 1984 song, which was the second single off Purple Rain, the artist sings :
“And if de-elevator tries to bring you down/ Go crazy, punch a higher floor.”
It’s hard not to see how this lyric eerily recounts his last moments.
Regardless, his influence in music will — without a doubt — last for generations to come.
