The music world, fans, and celebrities alike mourned the sudden death of Prince earlier this month. The iconic pop music superstar passed away at age 57 in his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on April 21 after battling the flu. Following the heartbreaking news, people on the Internet were quick to show love and respect for the "Purple Rain" singer via social media. "We lost a legend today. RIP PRINCE - He will live forever and continue to inspire through his awesome legacy," expressed bachata crooner Prince Royce on his social platforms.

Recently, the 26-year-old Dominican singer elaborated about Prince's death in an exclusive interview with Billboard. "I was very shocked. I knew he had been in the hospital, but still the news came out of nowhere," he told the renowned music publication. In the interview, the "Corazon Sin Cara" singer praised Prince's style of music and fashion, stating that he was always a fan of the legendary artist. He expressed the following of the late singer:

"He was an artist that I would and will always jam to. I always listened to songs like 'Purple Rain' and 'Little Red Corvette' and one thing that always stood out to me from his music was his reach vocally. He would go down super low and then in the same song go super high and have a lot of James Brown influence, R&B and pop. That was something that always stuck with me, the way he'd change his vocals in every song and it sounded like there were different singers on the record. I have certain songs even in my bachata songs that I would tell the engineer and producers 'hey, let's do some Prince sh-- here.' But he was just more than just a singer, he was a musician and would kill it in the guitar, on the solos, he had his own style/fashion, when he would come through in the heels, that was him and we'll always remember him for that. He's a legend and his music will live on forever."

Juanes, Julieta Venegas, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, and Luis Enrique, were among the many Latino celebrities who have also showed their sympathy on social media.
