Thanks for the article.

This proves what many of us belived.

Nelson says her father would record melodies on cassette — including the ones that would become "Purple Rain" and "Scandalous" — and send them to Prince. "Listen to this! Listen to this!" she remembers her dad telling her on the phone one day. He played her a song on the piano, and she said, "Oh my god, that's beautiful. Put the melody up front [...] and Prince will hear that melody." Weeks later, "Purple Rain" topped the charts.
