Sharing the stage with Beyoncè at the Grammys and being hailed by OutKast and Alicia Keys at the Hall of Fame induction demonstrated to Prince how decisive an influence he has been on an entire generation of younger artists. He was so moved by Keys’ speech—“Because of him, I’ve never wanted to be like anyone but myself… Because of his music, my music has wings to be different”—that a video of it introduced him every night on the Musicology tour…

That aspiring musicians heard a call to freedom amid the din of controversy surrounding him couldn’t possibly be more important to him. “The respect of young artists—I love that,” he says. “Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people. Alicia Keys gets it. All these hip-hop artists, the first thing they do is start their own label and lock their business down—we had a lot to do with that.”
