Prince’s blockbuster movie, and soundtrack, “Purple Rain,” produced his first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as “When Doves Cry” (with the Revolution) flew to the chart’s top perch. He’s since added four more No. 1s and 16 more top 10s.
It wasn’t just a No. 1 song: the compilation album “We Are the World” reaches the top of the Billboard 200. In addition to the title all-star title track, the set includes solo songs from Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Tina Turner.
