Prince has had an on/off relationship with the Internet. Having been one of, if not, the first major artist to embrace it as a medium to channel music directly to fans, Prince launched his pioneering NPG Music Club in 2000 – complete with an innovative and specially built music player. Bridging the gap between Paisley Park Studios and his fans’ personal computers, Prince had thumbed his nose at the music industry which at that time he vehemently distrusted. Ironically, because of its ease of music distribution, Prince fell out of love with the Internet in 2010 and shut down his website lotusflow3r.com. He declared the internet ‘over’ and stayed offline until 2013, with the launch of 3rdeyegirl.com. Below are Prince’s official websites that served downloadable music, via subscription or open purchase, with the entire discography of downloads they each made available.
