“33 years ago this Sunday, Prince and his band, The Revolution, released Purple Rain, one of the most important albums of all time,” Mars wrote in the description of the video released Thursday on his YouTube account.
“To celebrate the anniversary weekend, here’s a behind the scenes look at us rehearsing for the tribute we did at the 59th Grammy Awards.”
In the video, Mars, 31, is seeing dancing and singing away to Prince’s classic “Let’s Go Crazy.”
