    Album Revolution #2:

    After getting his footing with "Dirty Mind", "Prince" released "Controversy".....I bought this album when I was 10, and I wore it OUT!!!!!!

    The "Title track" is straight up "FUNKY", with subject matters that was on his mind at that point of his life....

    "Sexuality" was an interesting song...It wasn't really about Sex itself, it was about a state of mind....

    "Do Me, Baby" was "Prince's" first Super Classic Slow Jam (He would have many more to come!!!!!)....

    "Private Joy" was also an interesting song....It wasn't a Single, but it is BUMPIN', and for that reason when "Prince" got really popular, they finally decided to play it on the radio...

    "Let's Work" is the final single from the album and it was also straight up "FUNKY"!!!!!

    You Prince fans know about the rest...It was straight Sexuality and was something Prince would revisit OVER, and OVER again!!!!!!

    A PRINCE CLASSIC!!!!!!
