While he was rumored to be performing alongside a hologram of Prince, it looks like Justin Timberlake ended up paying homage to the Purple One in a different way. Tonight as part of his Super Bowl halftime performance, Timberlake covered Prince’s Purple Rain classic “I Would Die 4 U” live in Minneapolis to honor the songwriter’s hometown. Last week, Timberlake released his new album Man of the Woods, which came with a video for the album’s title track. Watch a clip of his Super Bowl performance below.
