The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office later revealed the singer died of an accidental overdose of the powerful painkiller fentanyl. On Sunday, Justin Timberlake paid homage to the music legend and native Minnesotan during his Super Bowl LII Pepsi Halftime show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. As he performed the late star’s hit “I Would Die 4 U,” Prince’s image was projected above the football field, and all of downtown Minneapolis lit up in his trademark purple.
