Prince is finally set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a recognition he declined twice during his lifetime before his tragic passing on April 21, 2016.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Tuesday, June 25, that the late singer will be honored posthumously as part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Class of 2025, alongside other notable figures like Nia Long, Misty Copeland, Fantasia, Jane Fonda, and David Beckham.
