As many around the world pay tribute to the late Prince by putting his mega hits on heavy rotation, HipHollywood is taking a walk down memory lane from a commercial shoot we attended back in 2009.
HH crews went behind the scenes with Prince during a commercial shoot for the singer’s three-disc album. The video was shot at the Universal Studios lot and featured one of his many proteges, Bria Valente.
In the commercial, the stylish musician, clad in all red, performed his track “Dreamer,” from the album Lotusflower.
Prince was found unresponsive on Thursday morning inside the elevator at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen. Medical crews attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the singer. Prince was pronounced deceased at 10:07 am.
Details surrounding the singer’s death are still unclear, but there are new reports suggesting that just six days ago, the 57-year-old was being treated for a drug overdose.
An autopsy is set for today.
