There is no doubt that Prince was one of the world's greatest musicians. Often hailed as a musical juggernaut, his talents earned him seven Grammys, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Accolades aside, he was also one of the world's greatest entertainers. From notoriously kicking Kim Kardashian off his stage, to performing a Super Bowl halftime show that is still talked about today, to appearing on the list of the best albums of all time — Prince was often at the forefront of the entertainment scene.
In honor of the anniversary of his death on April 21, 2016, PrettyFamous — an entertainment data site powered by Graphiq — highlighted his greatest contributions to entertainment. To do this, they ranked his albums and movies by their respective Smart Ratings. The Album Smart Rating is a statistic out of 100 that aggregates album ratings from external sources, including AllMusic, Metacritic, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and many more. The Movie Smart Rating is a score out of 100 that takes into account a movie's IMDb rating, Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer and Audience Score, Gracenote rating, Metacritic Metascore and the inflation-adjusted U.S. box office gross.
Whether you are looking for a "Sign 'O' The Times" or simply want to reminisce on the genius of Prince in "Purple Rain," take a trip down memory lane to be reminded of one of the greatest performers of all time.
