Estimates of the actual number of songs written by Prince (released and unreleased) range anywhere from five hundred to well over one thousand. Prince has sold over 150 million records worldwide,[1] including 48.9 million certified units in the United States, 4.8 million in France,[2] over 1 million in Canada[3] and over 10 million records in the United Kingdom.

Prince has accumulated five U.S. number-one singles and fifteen worldwide #1 hits, as well as 8 worldwide number one albums. He was the most successful artist on the Billboard charts from 1980-2000, scoring 8 #1 R&B singles and 7 #1 Dance singles (tied for second place for male entertainers with Enrique Iglesias and Michael Jackson). He has scored over fifty top 40 hits around the world since 1979. He has been ranked as the 21st most successful act of all time,[4] the greatest songwriter of all time, the 26th most successful chart artist worldwide,[5] including 27 overall number-one entries,[6] and being the most successful chart act of the 1980s.[7] His most commercial period was from 1982's 1999 to 1996's Emancipation, however, he has maintained a loyal audience since and experienced a commercial resurgence with 2004's Musicology, paving the way for several successful albums to follow including his latest, HITnRUN phase one, released in September 2015.
