Prince fans are in mourning since their beloved, Prince, died on Thursday (April 21). In remembrance of the artist who once went by a symbol, many fans are listening and buying up Prince’s catalogue, so it’s no surprise that some of Prince’s music has reentered the Billboard charts.

Prince has claimed the number one and two spots on the Billboard 200 with, The Very Best Of Prince and The Purple Rain Soundtrack, respectively. His popular, “Purple Rain,” song has also entered Billboard’s Digital Songs at number 1, which is a first for Prince because Nielsen began tracking download sales in 2003. The song’s reemergence on Billboard could also be attributed to AMC movie theaters playing the movie, Purple Rain, in remembrance of the great artist. See the rest of Prince’s songs on Billboard below.
