Prince is a bonafide music legend and it’s hard to find anyone who isn't a fan of his incredible music and his undeniable natural talent.
With over 100 million in worldwide album sales, five US number-one singles, fifteen worldwide number 1 hits, as well as 8 worldwide number one albums, the American musician is one of the most successful artists in the world.
Over the course of his thirty five year long career, Prince released twenty five studio albums and five soundtrack albums. Notably, Prince (1979), Diamonds and Pearls (1991), Controversy (1981), 1999 (1982), Sign O' the Times (1987), and Purple Rain (1984). In fact, Purple Rain is recognised as one of the greatest Rock Albums of all time, bringing in thirteen million album sales.
Prince is up there with the greatest stars of all time, like Michael Jackson and Madonna. He is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop stars in the world during the 1980s and early 1990s.
As a gifted vocalist and guitarist, he was also an accomplished pianist, drummer, bassist and saxophonist. His innovative music style included funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and of course, pop.
His eclectic genre hopping, flamboyant and androgynous persona, energetic and impassioned live shows and wide-ranging singing voice which included an impressive falsetto, made him into more than a superstar - but an empire.
His empire was far reaching. Prince created films such as Purple Rain (1984) , Sign O’ The Times (1987) and Under The Cherry Moon (1986). He knew that film was a way to reach his fans on a more personal level.Th e film Purple Rain (1984) itself was extremely successful and also won the Academy Award for Best Original Song Score. It was this musical and creative genius and flair that saw Prince inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
His career spanned four decades thanks to his ability to regenerate his music and sound to adapt to the changing times. This true legend is a music icon, and will forever be known as one of history’s greatest.
