As we wait for the results from Prince’s autopsy, the music icon’s longtime collaborator, Sheila E., tells ET she has her own theories about his death.
“In my heart I already know,” Sheila E. said when asked if she wanted to know the cause of Prince’s death.
However, the singer refrained from going into detail about what she believes happened.
“I can’t share,” she said simply.
Following Prince’s death last week at the age of 57, there has been a tremendous spike in album sales from his catalogue, and one song in particular is leading some to question whether Prince predicted his own death decades ago.
The haunting track is called “Sometimes It Snows in April” from his 1986 album, Parade.
“Sometimes I wish life was never-ending,” Prince sings. “And all good things, they say, never last.”
In an eerie coincidence, the song was first recorded on April 21, 1985. Prince died on April 21, 2016.
While “Sometimes It Snows in April” has drawn attention for when Prince died, another song, “Let’s Go Crazy,” is being talked about for where he spent his final moments.
The singer was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota, where medical personnel was unable to revive him. Elevators and death are key themes in “Let’s Go Crazy.”
“And if the elevator tries to bring you down//Go crazy. Punch a higher floor,” Prince belts out on the dance track.
Prince was the only one at his residence the night before he was found unresponsive until the three staff members who came to check on him arrived. There were no obvious signs of trauma on the body.
Sources confirmed to ET on Saturday that Prince’s body was cremated after his autopsy was completed on Friday. A memorial service was held for Prince at his Paisley Park estate.
