BillboardAs Prince continues to dominate the Billboard charts a week after his death, Billboard pays tribute to the late musical genius with a special issue dedicated to his memory.

The issue features an extensive look back at his career — including his defining Dirty Mind album, his iconic Purple Rain style and his many female muses. Billboard also includes some of Prince’s quirkiest stories and quotes, plus reactions from his former flame Sheila E., comedian Tracy Morgan and producer Jimmy Jam.

Morgan recounts how Prince’s song “Condition of the Heart” helped him cope with his father’s death, and he credits Prince’s music for teaching him “how to be gentle” with a woman. He also says that after seeing Prince up close, “I turned gay for about five seconds.”

Sheila E. reflects that she and Prince “always loved each other” and Jimmy Jam says Prince’s “talent was singular, second to nobody.”

The musician died last Thursday at the age of 57. A cause of death has not yet been revealed.
