The world was absolutely shocked and devastated when Prince died…but did he know it was going to happen all along? Lyrics from two of his songs seem to eerily tell the story of the tragic events that unfolded on April 21 — see them here.
When Prince told fans on April 16 to “wait a few days” before saying prayers for him, was it because he had already predicted his death was imminent?! As haunting as that sounds, fans have pointed out that song lyrics from two of Princes’s hits mirror the devastating tragedy. Read them here and let us know what you think.

As we previously reported, first responders found the late singer unconscious in an elevator at his home on the morning of April 21, where they unsuccessfully tried to revive him with frantic CPR. Shockingly, in the song “Let’s Go Crazy,” he sings, “And if the elevator tries to break you down, go crazy, punch a higher floor.”
Fans pointed out that it was an elevator that broke Prince down, which is incredibly chill-inducing — and that’s not the only reference people have noted. The song “Sometimes It Snows In April” is about going through a hard or sad time in life, and the lyrics compare that to when it unexpectedly snows in April.
“Sometimes it snows in April indeed,” one fan pointed out on Twitter, referencing the singer’s death as the tragedy in question. SO sad. Stream Prince’s greatest hits on Amazon Music HERE.
The “Purple Rain” singer had been battling a severe case of the flu in the weeks before his death, and was very ill when he performed a concert in Atlanta on April 14. On the way home from that show, his plane made an emergency landing because he was feeling so poorly, and he was rushed to the hospital to get checked out. However, he was discharged just a few hours later, and seemed perfectly fine at a fan event at his home the very next day, although his friends were still very concerned.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Prince predicted his own death?
