200px-Prince SelfTitled

Prince is the second album by Prince that was released on October 19, 1979 by Warner Bros Records.

It was a quickly written album in reaction to his debut "For You."

The album needed to have hits and sell well to make up for the blown budget on his first release.

Worries were stifled with the success of the lead single "I Wanna Be Your Lover" which reached number one on the R&B chart and nearly broke the top 10 on the pop chart.
