Prince is the self-titled second studio album by American recording artist Prince. It was released on October 19, 1979 by Warner Bros. The album was written, arranged, composed, produced and performed entirely by Prince. Prince peaked at 22 on the US Billboard 200 and 3 on the US Billboard Top R&B Albums. The album contained three R&B/dance hits: "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?", "Sexy Dancer" and "I Wanna Be Your Lover"
A 15-track album featuring 14 previously unreleased recordings that illuminate the vital role Prince played in other artists’ careers, Originals includes Prince's foundational recordings of hit songs like "Manic Monday," "The Glamorous Life," "Jungle Love," and more. Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership.
On Sunday night, the iconic guitarist was a guest at the W Hollywood Hotel’s jazz night when he decided that he felt like playing. Prince crashed the show to serenade the audience with a performance of the Beatles standard With a Little Help From My Friends. Nobody seemed upset that Prince inserted himself into the show, because he’s Prince, and he can do these things. Someone in the crowd recorded the video for posterity, which you can see above
Although the album is still rather uneven, a handful of songs rank as classics. I Wanna Be Your Lover" is excellent lite funk and "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" is a wonderful soulful plea, but "I Feel for You," a sexy slice of urban R&B with a strong pop melody, is the true masterpiece of Prince, indicating the major breakthroughs of his next album, Dirty Mind.
