A new book detailing rare photos of Prince boasts an introduction written by Beyonce, another larger-than-life music icon. That book, Prince: A Private View, is a collection of photos taken by Afshin Shahidi. The photog shared a friendship with the artist spanning two decades.

“Truth be told, the word ‘icon’ only scratches the surface of what Prince was and what he remains to me” is the only piece of her foreword confirmed so far.

The musical relationship between Prince and Beyonce is well documented, from their 2004 Grammy performance in which Beyonce covered The Beautiful Ones, and she covered His Royal Badness’ Purple Rain during her Formation Tour.

Check out Prince’s words regarding the star below and be sure to order your copy, due out October 17th.
