Musicology is the twenty-eighth studio album by American recording artist Prince. Musicology was the first album in five years that Prince released through a major label Sony Music and, being partially recorded in MississaugaOntarioCanada, was his first to be recorded outside Minneapolis in many years.
Receiving generally positive reviews from music critics, Musicology proved to be Prince's most successful record in years, peaking at number three on the Billboard and reaching top 10 in ten other countries. Musicology quickly proved to be Prince's most successful album since Diamonds and Pearlsreaching the Top 5 in the United States, United Kingdom and Germany and making a significant impression on charts around the world.
It also proved to be well received by music critics. The title track was only released as a single in Australiawhere it enjoyed moderate chart success and airplay. Part of the album's chart success is due to concertgoers receiving a copy of Musicologywith the album cost included in the ticket price for the Musicology Tour. This prompted Billboard magazine and Nielsen SoundScan to change its chart data methodology: For future album releases, Billboard says that customers "must be given an option to either add the Call My Name - Prince - Musicology Helen Wheels - Various - Warm And Beautiful - A Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney the ticket purchase or forgo the CD for a reduced ticket-only price.
Musicology received generally positive reviews from music critics. In his review for The Village Voicecritic Call My Name - Prince - Musicology Christgau said that after the album's opening uptempo songs, "pleasant shocks lurk near the surface and go against the flow of the quality material, and almost everything packs payback". Prince was chosen by Rolling Stone magazine's readers as the best male performer and most welcome comeback.
The tour was often billed as the Musicology Live everor more commonly, the Musicology Tour. A copy of Musicology was included with every concert ticket sold.
