Prince, songwriter

Prince Rogers Nelson (born June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American musician and songwriter. His career has spanned several styles: from his early material, rooted in R&B, funk, and soul, he has consistently expanded his musical palette throughout his career, absorbing many other genres including New Wave, pop, rock, jazz, and hip hop. Prince is a prolific artist, having released several hundred songs both under his own name and with other artists. Regarded by many as a perfectionist, Prince is known for being highly protective of his music. He produces, composes, arranges and performs nearly all of the songs on his albums.
