Purple Rain

It is the sixth studio album of African American singer, producer, and recording artist, Prince. Released in June 1984, the album is the first to feature Prince’s band, the Revolution, and is the soundtrack to the 1984 film of the same name. The soundtrack has sold over 25 million copies and is one of the greatest albums ever made. Some of the hit songs on the album include “When Doves Cry,” and “Let’s Go Crazy”. Prince and the Revolution won a 1984 Grammy Award for Purple Rain, for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, the four composers (Nelson, Coleman, Prince, and Melvoin) won Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media. The album was nominated for Album of the Year and it also won an Oscar for Best Original Song Score in 1985. In 2012, the album was added to the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry list of sound recordings that “are culturally, historically, or aesthetically important”.
