In the years preceding his recent death, Prince came under fire for refusing to adapt to the digital age. None of his songs were posted on Youtube, not even as covers, and he lacked his own Vevo channel to officially post music on. What’s more, he was not afraid to hit fans hard when they uploaded his songs or videos of his concerts to file-sharing sites. Critics argued that a whole generation which has discovered all sorts of artists on these websites were missing out on Prince’s hit singles. As a result, he was thought to be giving up the opportunity to reach out to potential fans. The numerous tributes following his death, however, debunked that theory: the musician is just as popular as ever. And the idea of Prince stuck in ages past is slowly losing its steam as well.
