Prince will forever be a music icon. Although he had MANY hits and started plenty of musical movements, his 1987 ‘Sign O’ The Times’ was a cultural revolution that used pop and soul to address the state of our country. Head over to @wearepushblack or swipe up in my story to be reminded of this legendary piece of work. #PushBlackHistory #RIPPrince 💜”
