Published

on

Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, is launching its first round of Prince catalog digital released on August 17. The first wave of Prince catalog titles to be released through an exclusive agreement struck in June between SME and The Prince Estate focuses on 1995-2010, a crucial epoch in Prince history. 23 highly-collectible Prince catalog titles (many of them hard-to-find or out-of-print) and Prince Anthology: 1995-2010 (a newly-curated anthology of 37 essential tracks from the era) are now available across all major streaming services and digital service providers.

Many of these albums, long sought-after by fans and collectors, are available for the first time for streaming and download, adding more than 300 essential Prince songs to the artist’s online in-print catalog.

For Prince, 1995-2010 was an unprecedented period of sustained and prolific creativity. Releasing fresh recordings at a rapid-fire pace through a variety of distribution strategies including his own online NPG Music Club, Prince was making some of the most provocative, experimental and soulful music of his career. Freed from major label demands and expectations, Prince was able to write, record and release his own music on his own terms.

Assembled and curated under the auspices of The Prince Estate, Prince Anthology: 1995-2010 brings together 37 key recordings from the era. Opening with the title track from Emancipation (“This is my most important record,” said Prince when the album was released in 1996) and closing with the anthemic “We March” (from 1995’s The Gold Experience), this new compilation provides a coherent musical chronicle of Prince’s artistic and spiritual evolution through the late 20th and early 21st centuries in songs that continue to resonant in the culture.

Prince Anthology: 1995- 2010 draws spotlight tracks from The Gold Experience, Emancipation, Chaos and Disorder, Crystal Ball, The Truth, Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic, The Rainbow Children, One Nite Alone…, C-Note, N.E.W.S., Xpectation, Musicology (includes 2005 Best Male R&B Performance Grammy winner “Call My Name”), The Slaughterhouse, The Chocolate Invasion, 3121 (the first Prince album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200), Planet Earth, LOtUSFLOW3R, MPLSoUND and 20Ten.

Think It’s A Game Records has become a powerhouse in the music industry because of the motivation and drive of Founder and C.E.O. Girvan “Fly” Henry. The New York-born and Atlanta-raised entrepreneur, mogul and philanthropist is the visionary behind Think It’s A Game Records. Thanks to Fly and his team, Think It’s A Game Records has quietly grown from a local label and management company into a multi-platinum hit-making powerhouse with major distribution, numerous awards, and a place at the forefront of the culture.
2012 marked a mainstream breakthrough for the company. Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything” blew up as one of the biggest songs of 2012. Not only did it earn a gold plaque from the RIAA, but an interpolation of the track featured in Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ mega-hit, “Uptown Funk,” which scored GRAMMY® Awards in the categories of “Record the Year” and “Best Pop/Duo Performance.” Meanwhile, Rich Homie Quan’s star skyrocketed. “Walk Thru” reached gold status, while “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)” went double-platinum and soared to #1 on the radio. At the same time, TIG7 Publishing garnered a trio of BMI Awards in the category of “Most Performed R&B/Hip-Hop Song” for “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)”, YG’s “My Hitta” [feat. Rich Homie Quan & Jeezy], and Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle.” In addition to BMI Awards, TIG7 Publishing has received several awards and accomplishments for signed producer June James: Billboard Top 40 Single with Travis Scott’s “Yosemite” which also went double platinum and Hot Single 100 with Yo Gotti’s “Put A Date On It”, certified platinum.
That success continued in 2017. Following years of development, “Fly” steered YFN Lucci to stratospheric success. “Key To The Streets” [feat. Trouble & Migos], also produced by TIG’s signed producer June James, marked the second consecutive #1 at radio, and it became platinum. “Everyday We Lit”, produced by TIG’s signed producer June James, followed the third consecutive #1 at radio, with a gold certification. Along the way, he orchestrated a high-profile distribution deal for Think It’s A Game Records with Warner Bros. Records. Under this partnership, Lucci’s full-length debut, Ray Ray from Summer Hill, captured spots in the Top 10 of the Billboard U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop and US Rap charts in addition to the Top 15 of the Top 200. “Fly” has been personally featured by everyone from XXL, Black Enterprise, and BET to HipHopDX and more.
