The filmmaker crafted a video featuring cuts and stills from his movie 'BlacKkKlansman' and footage of fans watching the film to accompany the song.

AceShowbiz - Spike Lee has honoured Prince by releasing a video to accompany the unreleased track the filmmaker used over the end credits of his new movie BlacKkKlansman.

Spotify boss Troy Carter, who is an adviser to the Prince estate, offered up Mary Don't You Weep for Spike to use in the film, and the director immediately decided the track should play as movie fans left the cinema after his powerful new period drama.

Now he's crafted a video featuring cuts and stills from the movie and footage of fans watching the film, about a real-life African-American police detective who infiltrated white power movement the Ku Klux Klan.

The video ends with a photo of Lee and Prince sitting courtside at a basketball game in New York in 1998.

This is the second Prince video Lee has directed - he also took charge of the late music icon's Money Don't Matter 2 Night promo in 1992.
