“We could put out more work in a month than most people could do in a year or more,” Susan Rogers, Prince’s former recording engineer, told Good Morning America, noting that the music legend had produced volumes of work in the ‘80s.

Bremer Trust was the company that forcibly opened the vault, to which only Prince had the code.
