About the album:

Pulled directly from the historic archive of Prince’s music, the 15-track album features 14 previously unreleased recordings that highlight the impact Prince had on modern music and the formation of many artists’ careers. The tracks were selected collaboratively by JAY-Z and Troy Carter, on behalf of The Prince Estate.


“Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership. He’s one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry. He trusted us, not just me, but TIDAL, to continue his fight,” said JAY-Z.  “Trying to help further that legacy through his music is an honor we couldn’t pass up as an organization dedicated to empowering artists. This gives his true fans that peek behind the curtain.”

When releasing HITNRUN Phase One on TIDAL, Prince said “After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognize and applaud the effort that real musicians put in 2 their craft 2 achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry. Secondly, TIDAL have honored Us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows Us to continue making art in the fashion We’ve grown accustomed 2, and We’re Extremely grateful 4 their generous support.”
