Pop and R&B legend, Prince, died yesterday at the age of 57. As a trendsetter in music, fashion, and never shied away from controversary, Prince’s legacy will continue to live on through not only his own work but the work he’s done for other artists. Here are 18 tracks that Prince wrote for other musicians. We included “The Story Behind” audio from Cyndi Lauper talking about “When You Were Mine.” There’s even live performances of Sinéad O’Connor‘s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and Morris Day‘s “Jungle Love” on this list.
