Beyoncé is the author of the foreword for an upcoming book on Prince. The book, Prince: A Private Look, is by Afshin Shahidi, one of Prince’s personal photographers for 10 years. The book “features photos and captions that reflect that relationship” between the legend and Shahidi.
“Truth be told, the word ‘icon’ only scratches the surface of what Prince was and what he remains to me,” Beyoncé wrote in the forward, according to Entertainment Weekly. Though they never released any music together, though they had performed with each other a couple times.
Prince: A Private Look is set to drop in stores on October 17, which is when we’ll be able to read the whole introduction. Pre-order the book on Amazon.
