Prince – Controversy

23,00 

Prince was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker. A guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist known for his eclectic genre-crossing work, flamboyant and androgynous persona, energetic live shows and wide-ranging singing voice. Prince is regarded as one of the greatest, versatile and most successful musicians in the history of popular music. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. Prince also pioneered the late 1970s Minneapolis sound, a funk rock subgenre drawing from synth-pop and new wave. Controversy is his fourth studio album, released on October 1981 by Warner Bros. It was produced by Prince, written (with the exception of one track) by him, and he also performed most of the instruments on its recording. Controversy reached number three on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). This was the first of his albums to associate Prince with the color purple as well as the first to use sensational spelling in his song titles.
