Prince’s NPG Records is suing Jay Z’s Roc Nation for streaming the late artist’s music.

These songs include “Purple Rain,” “Little Red Corvette” and “1999” and allegedly began streaming six weeks after Prince’s death despite not having permission.

However, Roc Nation has argued that they received permission from Prince to stream these songs before his death.

NPG Records is filing suit to stop the streaming and is seeking damages.
