1999 was Prince's fifth album. He had just modest success to this point, his biggest hit being the "I Wanna Be Your Lover" four years earlier. The title track was issued as the first single in September 1982, about a month before the album was released. That song reached US in December, and "Little Red Corvette" was released as the second single in February 1983. The song made a slow climb up the charts, reaching in May.
Listen free to Prince – The Black Album (Le Grind, Cindy C. and more). Just before the album was released to the market in 1987, Prince recalled all copies and abandoned the entire project, leaving roughly 100 European promotional copies in circulation, and several US copies that would be widely bootlegged in the coming years.
