Beloved “Margaritaville” singer Jimmy Buffett died of cancer, according to a new report.

After the musician was diagnosed with skin cancer four years ago, the disease progressed to lymphoma. This was the 76-year-old’s cause of death, according to TMZ.

“He lived his life in the sun, literally and figuratively,” a source told the outlet Friday, noting that Buffett had been on hospice since Monday.

Paul McCartney reportedly visited the Grammy nominee within the last week to sing to him.

News broke of Buffett’s death early Friday morning in a statement posted to his social media accounts.
