Prince Makes History, Covers Revamped Billboard

Legendary recording artist Prince covers the just unveiled Jan. 26 issue of Billboard magazine.

Not only is the "3121" singer on the cover, his story leads a new era for Billboard, which includes a re-tooled magazine, access to issues via iPads, and a soon to be unveiled revamped website.

"The music industry is a dynamic place, and this book will serve your information needs more than ever, going deeper into the trends, technologies and ideas shaping your decisions. If you don't learn something that will help your business in every issue, we aren't doing our jobs," Billboard editorial director Bill Werde says in an editor's letter located within this issue.

Expect more from Billboard, including the full cover story on Prince, later this week.
