The world is reportedly one step closer to hearing the treasure trove of music Prince had hidden in his vault.

The music legend, who died on April 21, famously kept mountains of unreleased music in a vault in his Paisley Park mansion, the same home in which he died.

Now that vault has been opened, according to ABC News, by authority of the Bremer Trust who is temporarily in charge of the late singer’s estate.

Because Prince was the only person who knew the code to get into it the vault had to be drilled open, ABC News reported.

Prince’s known music catalog has been valued at $500 million by his first manager Owen Husney, Reuters reported.

British attorney David Scott told Newsweek that future revenue from his recordings could net “hundreds of millions of dollars” more.

Some siblings and friends of Prince have even discussed turning his home into a museum, which would undoubtedly bring significant further income, but, because he died without a will, all of his heirs would have to agree and it would have to pass the scrutiny of the small suburb of Chanhassen.

The mayor of the city, Denny Laufenburger, is behind the idea but it still faces significant challenges with “logistics, traffic, parking, noise, hours of operations,” city manager Todd Gerhardt told USA Today.
