Prince Harry Says Shenseea’s Music Helped Him Through Dark Times

The world is getting an inside look at the Royal family thanks to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The pair has been ostracized by purists who have slammed the couple for abandoning their expected Royal duties. Harry has also been labeled the "black sheep" of his family. Now, he's spilling details of what goes on behind the scenes in his new memoir.

The famous couple's Netflix docuseries, but that doesn't hold a candle to Harry's autobiography, Spare. In it, the son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana doesn't mince words as he speaks about his family's scandals.

In a brief excerpt from the book, Harry mentions going through dark times in his life. He says he has often been at odds with his family, and during one period, he found solace by listening to Shenseea.

"In the times I felt alone and separated from my family, I always took time to myself to sit back and listen to Shenseea," he said. "Her lyrics resonated with me and got me through a lot."

The British Royal didn't detail which of the Dancehall-R&B singer's tracks eased his troubled mind, but Shenseea gave her guess.
