Billboard Top R&B Albums (Associated)




Definition


Below are all Related Artists albums with a Prince contribution that have charted on the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart from 1978 to present day. Top 10 hits are highlighted in light purple. Release dates are for the USA. Numbers in brackets after peak number indicate the number of weeks a record remained at peak position.

Albums containing a cover of a Prince or a Related Artist song previously released on an album are not considered as containing one or several "original" Prince song, and therefore are not eligible for this list. Albums that were part of a multiple-album set, released under the Prince moniker are not eligible for this list, and will be listed on the The Billboard 200 page to avoid duplicate entries.


Visit The Billboard 200 (Associated) for an history of Related Artists' album charting in the US pop charts and Billboard R&B Singles (Associated) for the Related Artists singles' in the US black charts.

The Billboard charts are published on Wednesdays and feature the airplay and sales figures collected for the week ending the preceding Saturday.
