*Prince was notorious for keeping his music and image off of YouTube, away from streaming services (except Tidal); and only on the big and small screen in the rarest of occasions.
Since his death on April 21, more clips of his interviews and performances are trickling online, and fans of Shondaland heard two Prince songs on Thursday night: “Nothing Compares 2 U” on “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Delirious” on “Scandal.”
Because Prince did not leave behind a will, it’s now up to his estate to decide how his music will be used. And they decided to grant Shonda Rhimes her request.

Whether or not Prince himself would’ve allowed his music to be used on “Grey’s” and “Scandal” will forever remain a mystery.
