A seven-time Grammy winner, Prince had Top 10 hits such as Little Red Corvette, When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy, Kiss and The Most Beautiful Girl in the World; albums like Dirty Mind, 1999 and Sign O’ the Times were full-length statements.
Elsewhere in his catalogue were songs that addressed social issues and delved into mysticism and science fiction. He made himself a unifier of dualities – racial, sexual, musical, cultural – teasing at them in songs like Controversy and transcending them in his career.
Prince’s music had an immediate and lasting influence: among songwriters concocting come-ons, among producers working on dance grooves, among studio experimenters and stage performers.

Prince put way more work into creating the type of music he like than any other artist I know. "Purple Rain" was chosen as the Wrap-Up Magazine most loved song from Prince. It is the first to feature the billing of his band the Revolution, and is the soundtrack to the 1984 film of the same name.
