CUMULUS MEDIA and DCP Entertainment launched the eight-episode podcast Who Was Prince? hosted by music journalist Touré and built around interviews with people who were close to him to reveal a fuller portrait of the revered musical icon.
“This is the most in-depth look at Prince possible,” said Touré. “We’ve assembled a large group of people who knew him and loved him to tell us who he was as a child and how anger toward his parents motivated him to become an amazing musician. They tell us about his multiple personalities. They tell us about what it was like to be with him in the studio and what it was like to be in a relationship with him. This will tell you who Prince really was. This is a labor of love that emerges from 20 years of studying Prince, interviewing him, playing basketball with him, and talking to tons of people who were close to him. I’m so proud of what we’ve done.”
“It was incredible working with Touré on this project,” said DCP Entertainment CEO Chris Colbert. “This man literally wrote the book on Prince, and with this podcast series Touré has brought us closer to understanding who Prince was, more than anyone else has been able to do before.”
The first episode “Honey, I’m Rich on Personality” is available now.
