“Prince was and will always be a very big inspiration to us as a band. His lyrics, the melodies, the guitar solos, the groove, the vibe, the music – - such an insane amount of talent. I think Justin Timberlake said it best, ‘not a ‘once in a lifetime’ kind of artist, more like ‘once in forever’,” the band wrote in the notes section.
R5 added, “We have played this song on tour quite a bit and it always brings so much energy to the show. There is nothing quite like a Prince song, and “Let’s Go Crazy” has always been one of our favorites and we thought we’d share it with you all, in memory of one of our favorite artists, Prince.”
And about that pic of Ross with a bloody nose? He’s fine.

The 21-year-old musician, along with brothers Riker and Ryland, took over the DWTS All Access booth during last week’s episode and chatted about coming off their Sometime Last Night tour, Allison Holker‘s new baby Maddox and whether or not Rocky would ever compete on the show.
“I’d probably get kicked off in the first couple weeks,” he admitted. “But…I would definitely give it a shot, if they would have me.”
When Ryland asked which pro he’d pick as a partner, “We’re all Broncos fans, and big fans of Von [Miller]…so maybe Witney [Carson]. She could tell me some scoop on his workout routine.”
If you didn’t know, Riker competed in season 20 and came in second place, and their sister, Rydel, has been wanting to be on the show for ages.
