Prince absolutely wanted his mountain of unreleased music to be heard after his death … this according to his friend and longtime protege, Shelby J.
Shelby told us — on the first anniversary of Prince’s death — she distinctly remembers talking to him about the legendary vault of music he’d recorded … some even with her. She says Prince was very clear about his wishes.
Prince’s estate got a restraining order against the producer who tried to release a 5-track EP of previously unreleased tracks. But according to Shelby — who worked with Prince for 10 years — he’d be on board with “Deliverance,” and much more, going public.
