Prince is the eponymous second studio album by American recording artist Prince, originally released in October 1979 via Warner Bros. Records.

The album was written, arranged, composed, produced and performed entirely by Prince himself, with the only contribution from another artist being vocal harmonies added by close friend and bassist André Cymone on the track "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?". 

Prince was recorded in just a few weeks after the release of his 1978 debut For You. After failing to to generate a pop hit (although "Soft and Wet" became a No. 12 R&B hit) despite using twice his initial advance to record the album, Prince was displeased at his lack of success, so a follow-up was quickly recorded.

This lead to a more diverse and well-received album than 1978's For You, both critically and commercially, selling over three million copies. Prince peaked at No. 22 on the US Billboard Album Charts, and peaked at No. 41 in the United Kingdom (Prince's first entry into the country).

The album yielded four singles:

  • "I Wanna Be Your Lover" - US #11, US R&B #1, US Dance #2, UK #41
  • "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?" - US R&B #13
  • "Still Waiting" - US R&B #65
  • "Sexy Dancer" - UK Only US Dance #2

Prince is also notable for containing standard R&B ballads performed by Prince, before he would later go on to establish himself with sexual romps on future albums.

After the artist's death this year, Prince again took a spot on the US Billboard 200, this time at No. 52.

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