Prince is the second studio album by Prince, originally released in October 1979. It was written, produced, and performed entirely by Prince himself, and is a harbinger of what Prince would be capable of in his future albums. The song “I Feel for You” is a true masterpiece, all the more incredible given the fact Prince was only 20 years old when he recorded the album. Other great singles from this album include “I Wanna Be Your Lover” and “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?”

Expanding the urban R&B and funk approach of his debut, Prince is a considerably more accomplished record than his first effort, featuring the first signs of his adventurous, sexy signature sound. Although the album is still rather uneven, a handful of songs rank as classics. “I Wanna Be Your Lover” is excellent lite funk and “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?” is a wonderful soulful plea, but “I Feel for You,” a sexy slice of urban R&B with a strong pop melody, is the true masterpiece of Prince, indicating the major breakthroughs of his next album, Dirty Mind.
