It’s been an emotional couple of months since Prince‘s death, especially for Sheila E

The afro-latina artist was working on a new project when the tragic new of Prince’s passing broke the news. The singer and percussionist continued to work on music, but decided to change the direction of the album. Sheila’s next album will now be paying homage to Prince and the relationship they both shared.

Sheila spoke to Billboard about the new project, titled Girl Meets Boy, and why she decided to push back the dance album idea. “It just wasn’t the music I wanted out right now. It’s not how I’m feeling; everything has changed. So a couple of weeks ago, I decided to write a whole new album. And it feels right.
