Prince Rogers Nelson was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker. With a career spanning four decades, Prince was known for his eclectic work and flamboyant stage appearances. He was also a multi-instrumentalist and regarded as a guitar virtuoso. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop.
In 1984, he began referring to his backup band as The Revolution and released Purple Rain, the soundtrack album to his film debut. It quickly became his most critically and commercially successful release, spending 24 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200 and selling 25 million copies worldwide.
In 1993, in the midst of a contractual dispute with Warner Bros., he changed his stage name to an unpronounceable symbol (Logo: Hollow circle above downward arrow crossed with a curlicued horn-shaped symbol and then a short bar), also known as the “Love Symbol,” and began churning out new albums at a faster rate in order to sooner meet a contractually required quota and so release himself from further obligations to the record label.
In 2000, he began referring to himself as “Prince” again. He released 16 albums after that, including the platinum-selling Musicology (2004). His final album, Hit n’ Run Phase Two, was first released on the Tidal streaming service in 2015. Four months later, at the age of 57, Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota on April 21, 2016.
Prince was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame on December 7, 2010. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and 2016 respectively.
Rolling Stone ranked Prince at No. 27 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
