Prince — who died in 2016 — was a legend in the music industry, as well as a pop culture icon. He sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Throughout his career, he won seven Grammys, as well as an Oscar and a Golden Globe. His Academy Award win was for Best Original Song Score for the film Purple Rain. In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Additionally, he was posthumously honored with a Doctor of Humane Letters by the University of Minnesota. Over the course of his 40-year career, Prince released 39 studio albums. Following his death, two more albums were released: Piano and a Microphone 1983 in 2018, and Originals in 2019.
