UK Singles Chart




Definition


Below are all Prince singles that have charted the UK Singles 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. The UK Singles Chart has 75 positions while the next 25 positions are compilled into the Next 25 chart (in a similar way than the Billboard Bubbling Under The Hot 100 chart). Entries in that latter will be signalled with N25 overlooking the chart peak position.

Visit UK Albums Chart for an history of Prince's album 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" (sales of different formats containing the same song) 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 chart.
