In light of the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests happening across the US and around the world, The Prince Estate has decided to mark the late icon's 62nd birthday with a timely handwritten note.

The Prince Estate notes in the Instagram caption that the message was from his personal archives, "Prince dedicated his life to speaking out against injustice, advocating for black excellence, and spreading the message of "Love 4 One Another." In this note that he kept in his personal archives, he wrote a message that still resonates today."

Prince's note reads, "Nothing more ugly in the whole wide world than INTOLERANCE (between) Black, white, red, yellow, boy or girl. INTOLERANCE."

As well as sharing the handwritten note, The Prince Estate shared a new video for his 2015 track "Baltimore" - a protest song written by Prince in response to the killing of Freddie Gray whilst in police custody back in 2015.

They captioned the post, ""The system is broken. It’s going to take the young people to fix it this time. We need new ideas, new life." Prince wrote "Baltimore" in 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of police, in support of Black Lives Matter."

Prince's "Baltimore" video is available to watch now on YouTube.
