Album release celebrations will take place in countries such as the United States, Spain, Poland, Brazil and more across the globe to celebrate the highly anticipated album.

When releasing HITNRUN Phase One on TIDAL, Prince said "After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognize and applaud the effort that real musicians put in2 their craft 2 achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry. Secondly, TIDAL have honored Us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows Us to continue making art in the fashion We've grown accustomed 2, and We're Extremely grateful 4 their generous support."

Prince previously partnered with TIDAL on a series of exclusive releases, including HITNRUN Phase One, HITNRUN Phase Two, the livestream of Prince's Rally 4 Peace concert as well as a weekly "Purple Pick of the Week" series featuring new tracks, exclusives, rarities and more from the Vault, curated personally by Prince.

"Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership. He's one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry. He trusted us, not just me, but TIDAL, to continue his fight," said JAY-Z. "Trying to help further that legacy through his music is both an honor we couldn't pass up as an organization dedicated to empowering artists. This gives his true fans that peak behind the curtain."

Starting June 7, Originals will stream exclusively on TIDAL.
