Prince & The Revolution – Pop Life

The follow-up album to the MEGA-successful ‘Purple Rain’, Prince & The Revolution changed gears and brought a new sound to the album, ‘Around The World In A Day’. 

“Raspberry Beret” was the first single and that had a bit of an electric folk sound, much like the rest of the album. The second single was actually recorded before ‘Purple Rain’ was even finished, showing a different direction in the sound Prince was going for. “Pop Life” peaked at #7 on the Hot 100!
