Yes, it is true. I have been following Prince and listening to his music for over 20 years. In fact, my law firm was influenced by Prince in many ways. Prince's constant evolution and creativity have been hallmarks of my life since I first listened to his Dirty Mind album back in college. This guy does not care what anyone thinks. He quite simply exists for his own musical genius.
Prince cast a funky purple glow over the charts this week, selling 183,000 copies of his 3121, according to Nielsen SoundScan, to capture Number One. Critically acclaimed and boasting the sexed-up single "Black Sweat," 3121 finds the Artist Formerly Known as a Symbol making music in the vein of his equally commercially successful album, 2004's Musicology. Though his songs might be slightly more PG-13 these days, Prince still injected some much-needed adult content into a chart recently dominated by the underage set.
MUST SEE! Classic VH1 performance of Prince.
