Listen to Urban96’s tributes to Prince, an Urban Legend
Nothing compared to Prince: The legendary singer-songwriter was a combustible fusion of rock, soul, sex and funk.
There wasn’t an instrument he couldn’t play, a style he couldn’t write in, or a song he couldn’t make funkier.
Over a 40-year career, Prince created scores of undying hits—from “Kiss” to “Little Red Corvette” to “Raspberry Beret”—while always resisting the lures of common commercialism. Though he scored one of the biggest selling albums of all time, 1984’s Purple Rain, he never lost sight of his uncompromising muse. His fidelity allowed him to extend the often lost values of the classic rock and soul era right up to the present.
