Prince is the second studio album by American recording artist Prince. Records Prince recorded the album in just a few weeks after Warner Bros. asked for a follow-up to his 1978 debut, For You.

Prince’s first album For You was released by Warner in 1978 and got stuck at on Billboard’s Pop Chart. Later Prince said that For You didn’t reflect him as a person.

Just 18 when he started recording the album, Prince constructed entrance and exit signs with uncanny prescience. For You is 68 seconds of gobsmacked a cappella harmonies, devotional and harrowing, built from his full vocal range.
