Madonna is the latest celebrity slated to tribute Prince, who passed away on April 21 at the age of 57. The Queen of Pop will be paying homage to the late funk legend at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Details of the tribute are being kept under wraps, but – in addition to Britney Spears‘ highly-anticipated medley of hits – BBMA organizers say that the performance will be one of this year’s highlights.

The pair have also had a long storied relationship, having worked together on the track “Love Song” from Madonna’s 1989 album Like a Prayer. After his death, Madonna took to Instagram to express her grief.

He Changed The World!! A True Visionary. What a loss. I’m Devastated. This is Not A Love Song.
