For You is the debut studio album by American recording artist Prince, released in April 1978 via Warner Bros. Records.

With the exception of "Soft and Wet", which was co-written by Chris Moon, For You was produced, arranged, composed, and performed, entirely by Prince himself, and is Prince's debut into R&B, funk, and disco. 

Although the album was not a huge commerical success, selling at just over 2 million copies, critics recognised Prince's talent early on, with Rolling Stone's Stephen Holden calling his voice "the most thrilling R&B falsetto since Smokey Robinson" and praising his "instrumental virtuosity".

The album's lead single, "Soft and Wet", became a minor hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 92. However, it broke the top-twenty in the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at number 12 and establishing Prince as a popular teen star at the time. A second single, "Just as Long as We're Together", was also a minor success at number 91 on the R&B chart.

The album again charted in 2016 following Prince's passing, taking the No. 138 spot on the US Billboard 200.

This LP Record is a 2016 reissue on 180 Gram Vinyl and contains a printed inner sleeve and was pressed in the EU.
