"The soundtrack features never-before-heard music by Prince, which was written and recorded as a personal gift to Donatella Versace,” according to press notes. “Donatella would like to use this special occasion as an opportunity to share this incredible music from a dear, and much missed friend."

After Prince passed away on April 21, Versace shared her thoughts on Instagram: "The young people were so important to Prince. They have to follow the example he set, to believe in their heart, respect their own soul and never trade their own individuality. It is what made Prince outstanding and relevant forever. I will always love him."
