UK Albums Chart


Definition

Below are all Prince albums that have charted the UK Albums Chart from 1978 to present day. Top 10 hits are highlighted in light purple. Release dates are for the UK. Numbers in brackets after peak number indicate the number of weeks a record remained at peak position.

Visit UK Singles Chart for an history of Prince's single hits in the UK.

The UK Official charts are compiled on Saturdays and published on Sundays. They feature a combination of "genuine sales" plus "combining of sales" (digital and physical album formats, deluxe editions) figures, retrieved daily by a panel of retailers and sent to Millward Brown. The panel is split into retailer types - covering General, Specialist, Supermarkets, Independents and Digital.

Promotional records as well as imports are excluded from the Official UK Charts.
