Beyonce recently flexed her pen game to ink a few endearing words on one of music’s late icons. According to USA Today, Queen Bey was tasked with writing the foreword for a book of photographs of the “Purple Rain” artist, titled, “Prince: A Private View.”

The images were captured by Prince’s close friend, Afshin Shahidi. The news site states the photos depict moments from live performances to candid memories.

“I’m beyond excited to officially share with you what I’ve been working on,” Shahidi wrote on Instagram (Aug. 7). “…I feel so thankful and blessed that @beyonce agreed to lend her voice to this book honoring Prince!”
