Prince was a true powerhouse, says one-time collaborator Kate Bush.

“He was so prolific, he used to make me laugh because whilst I was working on an album, he would have done two world tours, a couple of albums [and] a film,” Bush told BBC 6, according to NME.

Prince died at age 57 earlier this year from an opioid overdose. The pair had worked together on “Why Should I Love You,” from Bush’s hit 1993 album The Red Shoes.

“He was really playful and really sweet,” Bush told BBC. “What a talented man, what an artist. I think it’s a terrible loss that he should go at such a young age, its incredibly sad.”

She further told the U.K. outlet that there’s no unheard songs hidden in his or her archives that they collaborated on, dispelling rumors otherwise.

Bush, 58, previously commented on the singer’s death through her website, posting a note titled, “A Message for Prince.”

“I am so sad and shocked to hear the tragic news about Prince,” she wrote. “He was the most incredibly talented artist. A man in complete control of his work from writer and musician to producer and director. He was such an inspiration. Playful and mind-blowingly gifted. He was the most inventive and extraordinary live act I’ve seen. The world has lost someone truly magical. Goodnight, dear Prince.”
