Prince is Prince's second album. It was Prince's first platinum album and featured his first major hit single, "I Wanna Be Your Lover". Like For You, it features a mixture of funk, disco and rock.
The album features similar instrumentation to his debut. One notable new instrument is the Yamaha CP-70 piano. It was Prince's first album partially produced at his home studio, starting a tradition that would continue on many subsequent releases.
This was also the first album that was supported with a full concert tour and the first album to have promotional videos.
