Chatting with E! News' Zuri Hall, Drew Lachey said, "Purple Rain's been my favorite song for years. You go back and read our Teen Magazine bios, and I think my favorite song was Purple Rain 16 years ago
He continued, "You look at the way that he didn't apologize for anything. He was just his own artist. He made decisions based on what he felt, didn't worry about anybody else. But he did it without giving away too much. There was as mystery about him. You always wanted to know more about him. As artists, there was just something that was magical about him, you couldn't put your finger on, and everybody wanted to emulate it."
However, Drew admits he didn't always have a chance to appreciate that music, especially at a young age when his parents restricted him and brother Nick Lacheyfrom listening to the risque tracks.
"When we grew up, our mom didn't want to let us listen to Prince," he recalled. "But then once you find it your mind is like, 'Oh my goodness! This is what I've been missing!'"
For this reason, Drew says the world will definitely miss him, but he will never be gone. "It's really unfortunate that he's no longer with us but his legacy and his music will live on forever."
Prince died last Thursday in his Minnesota home at 57-years-old.
"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57," his rep said in a statement to E! News. "There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time."
An autopsy took place the next day, but according to the medical examiner, results won't be available for "several weeks."
