The singer spoke with a reporter backstage after her concert in Paris, France on Thursday, where she opened up about the singer-songwriter’s untimely death at 57.

“It’s such a loss that he’s gone,” Carey shared. “I’ll never get over it.”

Carey’s and Prince got to know each other “later in life” and even collaborated on a song, although that project never saw the light of day.

“He helped me through so many moments where I needed somebody to guide me through,” Carey said. “He was just a true genius… There will never be anybody else like him.”

Genius, legend, inspiration, friend. The world will miss you. I’ll never get over it.
