Released in the summer of 1984, Purple Rain is Prince’s most iconic album. It was the most commercially and culturally impactful release of his career, and coupled with the film of the same name, it influenced the fashion and sound of the rest of the 1980s.
By the end of 1985, Purple Rain had received two Grammys, three American Music Awards, two Brit Awards, and an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score, and the album remained at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for 24 weeks and in the top 10 for 32 weeks, selling over 25 million copies worldwide. It has since been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and has been added to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress.
