TikTok users are now free to put Prince's music in their videos

The late star's full catalog is available on the video app.

Good news if you're a Prince fan who's into making TikTok videos — especially the lip-synching kind.

The video-sharing social media app now features the Purple One's full music catalog, meaning users can add anything from "Let's Go Crazy" to "Diamonds and Pearls" to their creations.

Announced Friday, the move was made in partnership with the Prince Estate. 

"With the addition of Prince’s full catalogue on TikTok, it is our hope that a new generation of global fans can find meaning in Prince’s music, and be inspired to create,” Troy Carter, entertainment advisor for the estate, said in a news release.

The songs are already available in TikTok's "Sounds library," so fans can easily — and freely — use them as the soundtrack to their videos. 

The only drawback, of course, is that you're limited by the short runtimes of TikTok videos, which are typically 15 seconds but can be up to a minute long.

As Rolling Stone points out, Prince's music is "the latest and one of the most high-profile legacy holdouts to have their catalog on the service," with other major acts — like Led Zeppelin, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones — still unavailable on the app.

There's another treat for Prince fans, however; he now has his own TikTok account (@Prince.4.ever), which the company says will be sharing "archival footage of Prince performances, interviews, and video excerpts from his long career as an artist and activist."

The app is perhaps most famous for its viral lip-synching videos, but it features a wide variety of content and is one of hottest social media platforms on the planet.
