Lovesexy is the tenth studio album by American recording artist Prince. The album was released on May 10, 1988 by Paisley Park Records and Warner Bros. Records, a little over a year after Prince's previous studio album, Sign o' the Times, which received critical praise and a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

It is absolutely ridiculous how much flack this album really gets. While it is flawed in certain places, it is still a fine release from the Purple Prince. Given where the album sits chronologically, it makes it a bit easier to understand why Lovesexy gets this bad press. Let's start by turning the clocks back to 1987. Prince was coming off of the critical praise of his arguable Magnum Opus, Sign 'O' The Times.

Released May 10, 1988. With only days remaining before The Black Album’s release, Prince experienced a ‘dark night of the soul’ which he later referred to as ‘Blue Tuesday’. On 1 December 1987, Prince gatecrashed the DJ booth of Rupert’s nightclub in Minneapolis, wanting to try out a few Black Album tracks with a club crowd. While wandering through the audience, he met a young poet called Ingrid Chavez, who he invited back to his Paisley Park studio.

Lovesexy is the tenth studio album by Prince, released on May 10, 1988. The cover (based on a photo by Jean Baptiste Mondino) caused some controversy upon release as it depicts Prince in the nude. Some record stores refused to stock it or wrapped the album in black, ironically, as Lovesexy was issued as a replacement for the hastily withdrawn Black Album, which had a monochrome black cover.

Lovesexy is the tenth full-length studio album by Prince. It was released worldwide in May 1988, 13 months after his previous album Sign O' The Times. As an artistic statement, the initial CD release of the album was not split into tracks, but was instead tracked as one single 45:07 track, designed to be listened to as a whole (track titles were included, however). Later releases of the CD split the album into the nine named tracks, however.

Prince’s initial retort was to whip out the now infamous black album, originally scheduled for release last winter. These blatant allusions to the earlier, hornier Prince could have easily deteriorated into self-parody; indeed, Lovesexy could well have had the dubious honor of being the first Prince record to take its cue from his own past, becoming his first regressive album in a career characterized by large strides.
