Recorded in Prince's own studio, this album.

While the entire album was not terrible, it marked the beginning of a slow decline in Prince’s popularity. With the release of Musicology, Prince has now released over 31 albums, 27 on his own and four more with his band, New Power Generation, and various other works. That’s impressive enough, but remember, he has also written hit songs for a myriad of other artists such as The Bangles and Sinead O’Connor. And dude still has time for the ladies! He has had a string of protégés including Vanity 6, Apollonia, Sheena Easton (sort of), Sheila . Tevin Campbell, Carmen Electra, Mayté, and Diamond & Pearl, one of which became Ms. Calendar on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Image caption Prince holds a guitar shaped like the symbol that he took as his name in 1993. When Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol, it was regarded as both rebellious and foolhardy. Why did he do it? For a generation too young to remember his debut in the late 1970s or the impact of Purple Rain in 1984, Prince - who died yesterday - was perhaps best known as the musician who changed his name to a symbol. It presented all kinds of logistical challenges for the media, resulting in the clumsy title, "Artist Formerly Known As Prince". He became one of the first artists to sell an album online, and won a Webby Lifetime Achievement award for "visionary use of the Internet to distribute music".
The New Power Generation is Prince’s official name for what everyone else called Prince’s band. But NPG members continued to perform with Prince after 1992, and the NPG concept traces its history to well before 1991. As the Prince Estate explains: Prince first uttered the words Welcome to the New Power Generation! in the opening moments of his 1988 album, Lovesexy.
For 14 years, The Artist Formerly Known As "The Artist Formerly Known As Prince" - who was born with the name Prince Rogers Nelson - was merely known by his first name: Prince. The title of the first album in this new wave, released in 1992, was the infamous unpronounceable symbol. The following year, Prince doubled down by officially changing his stage name to this same symbol. In the words of Rolling Stone, Prince employed this symbol "largely to mess with," it being so difficult to reproduce. The label was forced to send out a mass mailing of floppy discs containing a whole new font for publications to use when writing about their artist
