Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.

And it's going to be a lot easier now that we can stream most of Prince's albums on Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon Music.

That's right – Prince hit big streaming services Sunday.

Until now, the only streaming service that had Prince's music was Tidal. But thanks to deal between Prince's estate and Universal Music Group, fans have more access to the Purple One's music than ever before.

Not every single one of his songs is available to stream, because the deal is limited to Prince music that was published during his time with Warner Bros. But there's still plenty to choose from, including popular albums like Purple Rain, 1999, Sign O’ the Times, Controversy, Parade and Dirty Mind, along with hits collections.

And it comes just in time for the Grammy Awards, which will feature a tribute to the late artist with performances from artists like Bruno Mars.

Billboard says Warner Bros. Records Chairman and CEO Cameron Strang released a statement thanking Prince's estate for its help to make the deal possible.

"Prince recorded his most influential and popular music during his time with Warner Bros. and we are deeply aware of our responsibility to safeguard and nurture his incredible legacy. Warner Bros. is thrilled to be able to bring Prince's music to his millions of fans around the world via streaming services, fittingly on music's biggest night," Strang said.

Warner Bros. also announced Sunday that a remastered version of Purple Rain, two albums of unreleased music, and two concert films from the Paisley Park vault will be released June 9.

At least we have Prince music on the ready to hold us over until then.
