I think that is a nice list of artists influenced by Prince. However I feel that these artists were influenced by a host of other artists.

If I was to list proteges, I would list.

1 The TIme
2 Sheila E
3 Jill Jones
4 Apollonia 6/Vanity 6

5 The Family

I like your list. If I was to make one using your interpretation thinking quickly off the top of my head, I would say.

1 D'Angelo

2 Frank Ocean

3 Lenny Kravitz

4 Terrence Trent D'Arby

5 Andre 3000 of Outkast.

What do I think? I think you need to look up the meaning of "protege."

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Exactly. I think this thread is stupid, that's what I think. Most of these folks ain't never been around Prince long enough to even catch Covid.

Oh well, clearly everything on Google is true.

You know damn well none of them were at Paisley Park, under this tutelage. None of them have recorded a Prince song written for them. None of them have been on Paisley Park or NPG Records.

Who is Deangelo? or Justin Timnerlake?

Were they in relations with Prince, did Prince release their records?

These folks have earned their place in the industry, whatever it is. None of them are that new to the scene, although some are newer than others. Hell, Nysnc was a late 90s group and set records with No Strings Attached's release. Timberlake has written & produced Beyonce (which is one of the best songs on BEYONCÉ in my opinion). Frank is the male Solange, and that's a huge compliment as both are awesome. D should be doing way more than he is, and I don't know why he's not doing something. Miguel has been here, but I honestly wouldn't know any of his music.

So they've paid dues to be where they are. But to name them as proteges... I think the OP needs to read up on what's a protege. The real word for it is mentor or idol. That's what Prince was to these folks; an influencer, an icon, legend, and a blueprint, just as Santana, James, George, Jimi, Sly and others were to Prince. No one would call Prince a protege of James Brown or George Clinton or Larry Grah...okay maybe that last one is different, but you get my point.

It feels like a troll post, to be honest.

well I never call you a troll. I'm thinking you should have supplied the link at the start. By posting it the way you did, everyone assumed these were your thoughts/opinions. Not someone elses. They would have directed their responses at the link/author

They are his/her thought/opinions. The article does not call the people it cites proteges. The OP did that all on his/her own.

I remember that time when Prince wasn't happy with three of those proteges. He told Justin, Miguel and Beyonce "Let's have some action.Lets have some asses wiggling. I want some perfection."
