Prince is back! The music icon is covering the latest issue of Billboard magazine, and for good reason. The legendary singer/musician will be receiving the Icon award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards on May 19, where he will be hitting the stage to perform! Prince released the new single “Rock and Roll Love Affair” last year, and fans worldwide are hoping for a new album soon.
This issue is the beginning of a new era for Billboard, which includes a re-tooled magazine, access to issues via iPads, and a soon to be unveiled revamped website.
“The music industry is a dynamic place, and this book will serve your information needs more than ever, going deeper into the trends, technologies and ideas shaping your decisions,” explains Billboard editor Bill Werde. “If you don’t learn something that will help your business in every issue, we aren’t doing our jobs.”
